ReviewAll complaints posted apply to my auto too! Buy the extended warranty. Maybe the numerous "kinks" will be out of the car by 50K. Having logged as many as 8-16 annual trips to the dealer for repairs, why take a chance? I bought the warranty, at 45k. When not in the shop, the car is a dream to drive. Repairs major:38k mi. slow down on the freeway = throttle etc; noisy suspension = motor mounts,struts,etc.. Minor annoyances:door lock, steering wheel adjustment failures/breakage. Brakes wear fast 3-front,1 rear replaced before 40k;tires too -nope not the driver, its the car (soft, safe Volvo brakes, heavy car (note the motor mount failures).
Best FeaturesYou FEEL safe, protected. SUV's and 18 wheelers are of no consequence.
Worst FeaturesReduce cost of extended warranty, new Volvo at Cost for owners who have significant numbers of "under warranty" service contacts. Bring Ford up to VOLVO quality control reputation, or Get away from Ford. Seek and achieve the 10's they want/expect the dealers to earn.
