Fitting new one on the morning with fingers crossed....

All modern tech, all very good for efficiency and ease of operation, all a pain in the butt when it goes wrong!
One of my Volvos suffered from a cam position sensor fault which manifested itself by the engine refusing to start sometimes, when the mechanic turned up it would miraculously start, as happens with most faults.
The throttle pedal is a common fault on these as are water pumps as they are made of toffee and elastic. Another problem is the lower mirror breaks off very easily when attacked with fists in road rage incidents.
