Hi out there. I have a 2010 MKS with 20K miles. I've had the car to the dealership to fix a clunking sound on the suspension when going very slow over bumpy/washboard type roads and driveways. You can also feel it in the steering wheel. They replaced a bushing - not the fix. I would appreciate any advice out there. Thank you!

You are not alone, see the other topic "sloppy front suspension" . I think there are a few of us that have the same issue. It definately sucks, but so far no one has been able to pin it down.

Control arm fixed the issue on my 2012...took many trips to the dealer to determine....process of elimination.

At 60K miles I had both front control arms replaced.The bushings were badly worn as the original owner had let things go.It stopped my low speed clunk over bumps.I would think this would be the first place the dealer would look.

Good luck.

Yep. Control Arms. Lifespan is VERY short. Sounds like the car is coming in half over low speed bumps. It's a weak spot for the Volvo S80 (P2) platform as well. I was curious if any of the modified/improved aftermarket parts for the P2 will fit our cars. Since they are very similar, maybe they cross reference???

The supplier seems to have made vast improvements on the Volvo part vs OEM.

Would be good idea to check your calipers/rotors or even your motor mounts.
