This is my 2nd Volvo. I love how it
drives. Powerful, very comfortable.
I've owned this car for 4 yrs and 6
days, just out of warranty. The worst
problems have been the brakes, needs
new brakes every 15-20K (unlike my
other Volvo), a complete AC compressor
replacement, a broken electric seat.
Most annoying, the Check Engine light
on if the gas cap is not replaced
properly. The dealer needs to reset
the computer when this happens. I'm 6
days past my warranty and the Check
Engine light is on. If it isn't the
gas cap, is the dealer willing to
help? No. I'm afraid most of my
dissatifaction is the dealer. I'm
trading for better service. If your
city has only one Volvo dealer, beware.
Cloth/leather combo heated seats (don't
like all leather-too hot in summer),
Extra couple of inches of ground
clearance, and it just feels safe.
Better customer service, solution to
the bad braking system on this model
and the gas cap/check engine light
