At 79,000 miles this car is on its third transmission. The front struts have broken through nornal driving. It has had two leaks of transmission fluid. The second leak required the radiator to be removed to replace a hose. The interior design makes it very difficult to see traffic behind you. This is our third (and last) Volvo. Repairs this year alone came to over $4000.
Re-design the car. The 2008 is suppose to be a new design but if the same people are manufacturing it, I would guess the Volvo reliability would be the same as the 2004....poor!
