I have had this car for 3 and 1/2 years and I have spent at least 5k on repairs. I bought it for about $3,800. I have nothing but problems from day one. I've had the engine rebuilt (blown head gasket), which was the most expensive. Had a massive oil leak, which took my mechanic boyfriend countless hours and dollars trying to fix. That was fixed... then on to the rest of the problems. Now, my favorite issue is that it revs when in drive, park, or neutral. It accelerates and decelerates all by it self if my foot isn't on the gas pedal. How fun! I don't have enough room to go over all of the problems I've had but I've been so sad about it. The car is so cute and I love the turbo but just awful.

Once again, my poor Volvo sits and waits for my attention.
Bought it 3 years ago with new engine.
Absolutely love the way it drives and still do (but not at the moment).
Replaced radiator last year.
Have blinker problems sometimes.
Last problem was weird; the car started to accelerate while we were driving in town, and when I went put it in park the rpms revved up, then turned off the engine.
Later that evening we went out to eat and when we first parked, the car revved up again, then I turned the car off.
When we came back out the car wouldn't start at all.
Didn't sound like a typical timing belt issue, sounded more like it was out of gas.
Towed car home.
Car sits waiting for me:(
