Review

This car is an utter joy to drive and
one of the most comfortable cars when
it is not in the repair shop. This year
alone I've had the rear main seal, ABS
controle module and radiator fan go.
Very common problems on these cars and
Volvo does not stand behind them,
especially the brake problems. They
claim they have no knowledge of these
problems. I have filed a complaint with
the National Highway Traffic Safety
Association for the brake problems.
Repairs are astronomical and
relaibility is subpar for a luxury
vehicle.

Best Features

Seats.

Worst Features

Better manufacturer backing, common problems (and expensive ones) are not backed by Volvo.
