    Hi Guys I've been three days trying to find even a scrap of information about how to change the door lock module on a 2012 Volvo S60. The Volvo forums suck. Everybody say..."Well, I take it to the dealer". If I wanted to spend huge money and have someone break the door apart then that's what...

    Airbag recall service done, now the radio, navigation and sound do not work. No number appear on the screen-just the boxes with no numbers inside. The 80K check gave me 2 months free of Sirus XM free-i think they zapped it! I'm not very happy with the recommendations at this time

    Thermostat needed replacement at about 65K miles; Service Mgr. said the Germans have outsmarted themselves as it is built into the water pump, making a $6 thermostat(they said I should replace pump also) and a $ 50 water pump into a $677 service bill! However that was not near as bad as the news...
