Should be as reliable as Volvo used to be
By Jimmy on
2000 Volvo S80 2.9 4dr Sedan
I purchased this car with 54k on it, mostly for volvo reputation of durability and reliability (not any more). I have to change the power steering rack ($900) Cooling fan (before they make a recall). Every visit to volvo dealer is like going to HELL, they charge you for the aire you breath. Every thing typically cost you 10 times compared to the same issue in an american or Japanese car. I am already looking for either Honda or Toyota.
Interior design, comfort ride, CD changer and handling and stability on high ways.
Go back to volvo in 80's and 90's. Volvo dealers have to change their thinking of crushing and squeezing their customer and pushing them to the end.
