I bought this car used in late 2003. I had many problems with the car such as sunroof and trunk leaks that my mechanic couldn't locate (and they're volvo mechanics) and numerous other problems such as replacing the evaporator, compressor, power seats, etc... The car's engine and ride are very good but that's it. The car was in the shop probably every 3 weeks. I finally traded it in on a used Acura which is great. I've owned Volvos since 1986 and I'm not impressed with their build quality.
