We bought the Volvo 880. In the past 5 years have already put over $80,000 in repairs. Coming out of the shop again, another $14,000. Any ideas on how to get our money back? Or a good lawyer?? Email at Kassinger@ATT.net.

My business is on its 14th truck with a Detroit Series 60 12.7L (pre-2008 models). Absolutely GREAT fuel mileage hands down. 8.5 MPIG without any issues. When I did noticed MPG dropping it was a simple as dropping in a new set of injectors and instantly 1 MPIG increase. These engines (all of mine) have had not major component problems past 1.6 million KM.
Now those good days are gone, I am stuck with salesmen telling me all kinds of stories about VED, ISX, CAT, DD which sends me to the blogs.

Mike I can't believe you would come on here to say its a great motor !! I can't get past a volvo without stopping for some kind of major problem. Every volvo shop will tell you your problem I's the D16. They won't even look you in the eyes again!! They say I'm sorry, look down & walk away. Truly a POS!!!!!!!
