So, 12K miles on my Volvo - driving from Florida to CA and my fuel pump failed while I was at Zion National Park. Had to get towed to Las Vegas, which was the nearest dealer. Good thing it was in the same direction I was heading. Of course Volvo paid for the tow. It turns out the fuel pump was drawing too many amps and blew out the 15 amp fuse. The dealer replaced the fuse and the fuse blew again after the car ran for a few minutes. A new pump was ordered. Meanwhile had to rent a car to get to CA. I will need to drive back to LV to drop off rental and pick up my car. Findlay Volvo of Las Vegas: great customer service so far. Since this was a trip interruption and I was towed through Volvo roadside assistance, Volvo will reimburse up to $500 of costs associated with the cost of the trip interruption. So my rental and gas back to LV will be paid by Volvo.
Still, a fuel pump failure! I have to say I am lucky it happened in Zion. I was in some very remote places, like Valley of the Gods. If it happened there: no cell service, few cars and who knows how long I would have had to wait to be towed.
My NOX failed with 84 miles on the car. Hope there aren't any more gremlins lurking in the car. Overall, the car did really well. Used the off-road mode several times. AWD got me out of a few sandy situations, but I personally would not take this car anywhere that requires high clearance. This trip has made me realize that the sidewall height on these 19" tires does not give you confidence on really bad roads. I may need to rethink tire size when these tires have to be replaced.
