Love Hate Relationship

2001 Volvo S60 2.4T 4dr Sedan (2.4L 5cyl Turbo 5A)
If only the car was out of the shop long enough to enjoy driving it. I have owned this car for 5 years. Very high maintenance costs and major repair bills. Volvo seems now just like daddy Ford - hide the design flaws and fix only when the lawsuits and/or government finally steps in and forces the issue. I would love this car were it not for problems with the very heart of its performance-the electronic throttle module. Almost guaranteed to break - so much so that they have now agreed to warrant the darn thing up to 200,000 miles - and they'll replace it only after making you spend thousands in diagnostics and pre-repairs. Then, they replace with the same defective designed part! Unbelievable
Looks, performance when not in repair shop.
Proactive and honest approach to design flaws and safety issues. Don't wait for lawsuits and government actions to finally (albeit reluctantly) fix your dangerous products. Redesign the ETM and replace it for the 300,000 plus people out here who bought your junk.
