Volvo xc70: Just purchased a 2005 Volvo xc70. It is in good

This answer was rated:

Just purchased a 2005 Volvo xc70. It is in good shape with 180000km. My only concern is a very noticeable shimmy or shake or vibration at around 100km/hour, becoming more severe at around 120km/hour. Alignment? Tire balancing? Something more severe?
Also, getting a text message that the alarm system require servicing. What could possibly need servicing in the alarm system which is working fine?

Enes :

Hello and welcome to our web page here my name isXXXXX a Certified Volvo Car Expert Mechanic.I'm going to try to help you find the help you need

Enes :

high speed vibration are most the time in tires and wheels

Enes :

than also it can be drive shaft and engien mounts

Enes :

and for alarm most the time is siren module but to confirm siren problem alarm problem you must use scanner to hook it up read error codes

Enes :

but i would say vibration will be bad tires or bent rims so close up inspection needs to be done


thanks enes. the car has a 30 day all inclusive warranty and is going back next week for some final work and adjustments. I will use your comments to guide me. Will let you know how it turns out and finalize your payment.


Is the problem is engine mounts or drive shaft, is that an expensive issue? Can you estimate what it might cost?

Drive shaft can be costly repair each side if you using volvo parts is close to $800
