I will never buy a volvo again. I don't
know why everyone thinks they're such
great cars. In less than 6 months at
76,000 I had to replace blown heater
lines, the bearing that holds the drive
shaft (so it wouldn't bang against the
bottom of the car), a blown head gasket
(stupid aluminum engine), and an
endless headache of electrical
problems: power roof switch, dash
lights going out, and drivers side
heated seat stopped heating. Under the
hood the electrical is crap, too. The
interior quality is crap, too. The trim
would come loose and it had tons of
squeeks and rattles.
Ignoring the rattles and when
everything was working, the ride was
smooth and the engine had plenty of
power. Also the seats were very
comfortable and the interior is very
roomy. The turning radius is wicked.
