The quality of this vehicle has been
extraordinarly low. Lightbulbs go out
constantly. The headlight switch went
at 18,000 miles. The exterior side trim
on both sides has become loose and
munched by door opening three times now.
The tensioner on the main engine belt
has been a major problem - during wet
weather, the alternator spins down and
we lose power steering! We bought this
car for it's reputation of being safe
and reliable - it has been a nightmare.
We'll never buy another volvo.
Powerful engine, very fast when needed.
Child seat comes in handy.
Overall build quality on this vehicle
needs to be improved. Many, many little
things - mostly electrical, but not all
- need to go through a major quality
control pass back at the factory.
