Bought this car after totaling my 99 Subaru Forester. Huge mistake. Impulsive buy because I had no car for 2 months trying to find a subaru. Finally bought this piece of garbage. It is in the shop every month for something. Check engine lite is permanently on because there is always something about to die and they do like to give you fair warning. I am so disappointed in the price and frequency of repairs for this car. I don't trust it to start or keep going once it has. O2 sensor, catalytic converter, all belts, oil shield, tires, battery, you name it and I have replaced it.
All types of bells an whistles, very solid ride, love the heated seats and the leather. Love the interior. Turbo is cool. No rust yet.
Cupholder, they are pathetic. Won't really hold 2 cups, in fact barely hold one securely. Reliability. Volvo is supposed to be the best. Uh, not so much. Next car will be a Subaru or I'll ride my bike!
