I purchased this car as my third volvo. Judging the quality as a used car, it is excellent. There were a few little problems that I have had get fixed during the 6 months that I had the car, but nothing even coming close to major. The turbo punch helps on the highway, that's for sure. Volvos forever!!!
Even if the leather is cracked (I got it used), it is very comfortable. The paint job is impecable. The stock stereo is perfect, and the engine is punchy! From what I can tell, the engine should last to at least 200,000 miles!
As with all volvos that I have ever had and seen, the parking lights and brake lights always fizzle and come back on, weird! Getting it serviced at the dealer is expensive, expect to pay $300 for just about any visit!
