This car is a big disappointment.
Dealer had good reputation and all
signs pointed to a good ownership
experience. Wrong! Stuck on the side
of the raod twice. Alternator failed.
Transmission computer failed. Air pump
failed. Brakes squeal!!! Battery
failed without warning. AC failed at
least twice. Somehow refrigerant got
out of the AC system without there
being a leak. Right.
Dealer service is expensive etc. etc.
BMWs have been much more reliable.
Old Volvos deserve their good
reputation; this one does not.
Seat are nice. Cargo capacity is
great. Usual Volvo safety attributes.
Too expensive for only a five-cylinder
engine. Just not reliable. Repairs
are expensive. Dealer explanations of
service problems are not credible.
