I bought this car as a family vehicle,
upgrading from my Honda sports car. It
has barely met expectation. While it
consistently rates well on crash tests,
every little thing breaks on this car
and I BABY this vehicle. It has low
mileage and I service it every 5K
miles. In 4.5 years, virtually every
part has failed and Volvo charges
upwards of $1500 for every repair.
That includes replacing the lightbulb
that lights the dashboard (failed in
first 6 months of ownership) and the
wipers on the headlights (failed during
first 3 years of ownership).
Handles well for a mid-priced sedan.
All of the little pieces that fail in
the first 50K should be REPAIRED at no
charge! Or, maybe Volvo should just
get out of the car manufacturing
