Out of the 4 cars I have owned I have had the most trouble with my S40 Volvo. In a 4 yr. period I have paid $8,000 in repair (that includes 1 scheduled maintenance at 80,000 miles but does not include regular oil changes). A few problematic things to mention are shifter broke, radiator hoses, motor mounts catalytic converter, attena stopped working, window stopped working, O2 sensors...the list goes on. I will never buy another Volvo!
