Anyone got a steering wheel hub puller for a Volvo Amazon that I could use, please?
Volvo 122. Unlike some of the other good suggestions, this is a totally CIVILIZED older car you can operate comfortably in the modern world. A VW beetle is something of a joke in wintertime, and a Citroen 2CV is a death trap. Everything is easy on the Volvo 122, and aside from working on the overdrive, you need no special knowledge. Parts are still available, and aside from perhaps renting a hub puller for the back brakes, you need no special tools. These cars can run forever. There is no car on earth that will run as long IMO, given the same level of maintenance and money spent. It is also very well-built, so you could survive a crash. It gets very decent MPG, has good visibility, and adequate power for freeway. Get ’em while you can—they are going fast and prices are rising. I can see why you want to ditch the 2004 Mini Cooper. I own a 2003. It really is a piece of junk…although fun, I must say, or I would have scrapped it by now.
Just so you know, Mack doesn’t make their own engines anymore. Volvo sends their engines disassembled to the Mack factory where Mack assembles them so they can call the Volvo engines a Mack engine. Too bad since Mack made some great engines-and probably the most successful 4 stroke V-8. You’ll notice many truck pullers still using the Mack V-8.

I owned a series of three used Volvos in the late eighties and early nineties as commuter cars. They drove better on slush-covered roads than our VW Jetta, which was prone to front-wheel skids when crossing over slush in passing maneuvers. I found the cars to be durable, without being reliable. Case in point. One evening I parked on the street outside the local library, only to hear a crash somewhat later. A mid-sized GM product’s accelerator had locked as the driver jumped a caution light. He had ploughed into a Dodge pickup parked behind my Volvo 242. The impact careened the Volvo into another car in front. I don’t recall its model. Tow trucks removed the other three vehicles. I drove the Volvo for the rest of the week. The only apparent damage from the crash was the contents of the glove box strewn all over the passenger seat. A couple of months later I did get to make an insurance claim when on an unrelated matter a mechanic mentioned that both engine mounts had been sheered off. Volvos at that time were very tough cars. They were not reliable, though. I got into the habit of crawling underneath to bang components with a hammer which otherwise wouldn’t work. The starter was one, a fuel pump another. Brakes and exhaust systems seemed to be yearly repairs, though that could reflect more on the after-market part quality than the inherit merits of the cars. The old Volvos were lovely things to drive. They steered as well as Volkwagens. When I finally went to Toyotas I hated the steering, but loved the reliability of the line. We kept our 1984 VW Jetta (gas) for 19 years. It was a tremendously reliable and economical car. The Volvos were thirsty on fuel, but strong pullers on a trailer and safe in traffic on slippery roads. The biggest change when I bought a new 1995 Toyota 4Runner was the discovery that it was utterly reliable for the first 350,000 km I drove it. No Volvo would match that, nor VW, for that matter.
Relining the rear drum brakes in a 1964 Volvo. The drums were very difficult to remove. I bought a heavy duty hub puller, and had to pound on it with a sledge hammer, while torqueing it with a breaker bar. The drum finally separated with a very loud bang. The car actually moved on the jack stands from the recoil. A rear brake cylinder needed to replaced, and none were available in the US for weeks.
Currently, diesel electric drive systems (as used in locomotives) are used when the conventional direct drive system would be either impractical or unwildy. The prime examples are site trucks used in off road mining and road construction. Electric cars are racing now toward 1% of the market and Volvo has stated that they will not build gasoline vehicles after 2020. As for class 8 road tractors, 18 wheelers, pure electric is definately comming here too, and test vehicles are running now, but the state of battery technology is not quite to the point where the weight and range are competitive with pure diesel. Stay tuned, electric will arrive when the batteries are ready. We’re not there yet. Mike Heaton
Three reasons come to mind: Options like LED lighting, parking sensors, distance monitoring sensors, parking cameras etc. are built into the bumper, damage the bumper and at minimum all the kit needs disconnecting to repair, at worst the kit needs replacing/repairing alongside the bumper repair. 2. Modern cars are shifting towards a “plug and play” system for lights etc. The traditional wiring loom with 100’s of wires is phasing out and being replaced by a simple loop around the car. Great for diagnosing issues, expensive to replace when damaged. 3. Safety; traditional bumpers were meant to bump and withstand damage in minor collisions saving expensive repairs. The rationale behind design has shifted towards preventing injury to occupants of the vehicle and pedestrians outside. The bumpers are designed to crumple, decreasing the deceleration forces in a collision. once they’ve crumpled they can not be re-used; the structure will not work efficiently in a second collision so the parts need replacing. Back in the day you could have used a puller/panel hammer to knock the dent out and re-spray. Its going to get more expensive as new innovations come into play (Volvo were toying with the idea of anairbag that pops out from the front of the vehicle in pedestrian collisions) and auto drive systems come online. Thanks for the A2A!
