    It first depends on what years and models you are looking at. There were some dark days (for almost all manufacturers) from the mid 1990's to the mid 2000's. Since then, Volvo has had very few...

    Did the O'Reillys do a load test on the old battery first?

    Let us all know in a few days if it's cured for you, please.
