Default V40 1997 SE Auto

I had new brake discs fitted, and now after only having done 4291 miles, am told by Volvo that they need replacing because they are defective. This over a period of 12 months and only doing 400 odd miles.Will Volvo replace the discs free of charge? Has any else had this problem.

If a Volvo dealer fitted the parts there should be a time / mileage guarantee on the parts. There's no way that a set of discs on a standard road car should need replacing in under 5000 miles unless they were faulty, or the discs were not fitted in the right way.

I think you have a strong case for getting them replaced for free.
