It is stated to change the camshaft
belt every 50,000 miles, but it breaks
whenever it want to. When it did on
mine the engine literally blew up. The
pistons hit the valves and we had a
broken piston, 14 valves broken or
bent, basically the car's worth in
damage. I cannot believe there were
some really stupid swidish car
engineers putting a rubber band to
drive the water pump and two 12 valves
each camshafts, that is so stupid. Most
other cars have a steel chain. I'd be
better off driving the car to a river
and burning it than repairing the damn
thing. I though Volvos were relieable,
but it is just the hype. DO NOT BUY
It drives when it works.
If you have one, burn the damn thing
and buy another car.
