Volvo D3 - Jumping In to Hop Home Mode
About 1 year ago I purchased a 6.5m Pro Sport Rib with D3 130hp Volvo.
Time went on and we had a few teething problems, however a major problem occurred, the engine kept restricting itself to 1500rpm (Hop Home Mode). After various trips to the Volvo Dealer (Who Were very Helpful), several phone calls to Volvo (who didn't know allot about the engine) & 70 od days of down time. Volvo replaced the engine, several weeks later a bill lands on the door step for work not covered under warranty, a loom, ecu, and a few other bits that ad up to over £2000.
Volvo are saying that the problems are my fault because the loom and ecu started to corrode.
I have received many phone calls from D3 Owners who have had the same problems. I would like anyone who has had problems with D3ís to post here.
