Seems the SMB will be a daily driver for a bit. My wife's 05' Volvo S40 AWD now has trashed both front bearing units and CV joints at 75k miles.
The car has never been abused and has mostly highway miles, a pavement queen that gets washed regularly and garaged every day. I already replaced a rear sealed bearing unit earlier this year ($234) doing it myself. What a crappy drivetrain................!
I think i'm mostly pissed that this takes away trip/travel money.
