I love it when it works, but my CPO MY16 XC90 is at the point where I believe it is unreliable. Got the CEL and it was another P0171 code as I have had before. This time diagnosed as a "supercharger leak" after they smoke tested. This is the same code and diagnosis I had almost exactly one year ago, they diagnosed the same problem and ended up replacing supercharger gaskets. The CEL came on again a day after giving it back, and then they replaced the oil trap. This is now a recurring issue with this vehicle.
The real kicker is, they gave it back to me last Friday and said it was ok to drive until the parts came in to fix the supercharger leak. Started a 120 mile planned trip that evening with the family to get away for the weekend, and the coolant system sh*t itself. Limped the car home in the dark dumping 2 gal of coolant into the reservoir just to drive back the 60 miles I made it from my house, stopping every 15-20 miles. Dealer diagnosed this as the "coolant pipe" breaking. This happened the day I got the car back from the dealer, what a crazy coincidence (I do believe it was just that).
This brings me to the point of my rambling: I seem to have recurring issues with this vehicle, do I have a chance with a buyback at this point? I've now had the P0171 CEL on 3 occasions, and a coolant issue in the 17 months I've owned this car. I want to stay with the brand as I've been driving Volvos forever, but I gag at the thought of owning this car out of warranty.
Anyone have any words of encouragement that a buy back could work for me in this situation? Also, any contact info for Volvo North America from the group so I can at least start this process?
Thanks in advance,
