This Volvo is definitely not one of the better products Volvo has made. My car is always in the shop and has multiple electrical and computer problems (there are 7 computers in it, none of them very reliable). The engine is fairly reliable. Domestic and Japanese cars have better records. I paid about $30,000 for this car and have put in about $25,000 in repairs. So basically, my car has become a $55,000 car over 9 years. I probably should have tried another brand, but with past experience of Volvo's reputation of safety and reliability, I thought this would be good. It was a mistake. Avoid this car if you can. Or buy it cheap since it doesn't really hold value anyway.

The following have required replacement/repair in the last 10k miles. Three AC modules. Power steering harness, ABS module, Struts, Shocks, Power radio antenna, power door locks, Power seat does not work properly. To this point the engine and transmission have been solid. The bottom line is $4,000 worth of repairs for a car that had been reliable but has turned into a money pit of repairs. If you have one sell it before you put too much mileage on it.

This car saved my life last week.
Totalled it and I was told I was very
lucky to be alive. I wouldn't be here
today if I wasn't driving such a safe
car. The car had 92000 miles and had
never given us a problem. Amazing car.
