great features, poor reliability

ReviewWell, we are happy with the design and capacity, but it has been a major mechanical headache! Look closely at Volvo's used car reputation before you buy one and definitely get all the maintenance records. We have had engine problems (two pcv valves, gasket oil leak, numerous errorneous check engine lites), disc brake replacement (rear), electric lock issues (master actuator replaced 2x), steering noises (lube, lube, lube), and 2 minor recalls. After much complaining, Volvo offered to take the vehicle back off lease IF we bought another NEW Volvo at dealer cost. No way!
Best FeaturesAWD, 7 passenger seating, the fact that it is not an SUV. Shoulder belts for all my passengers.
Worst FeaturesQuality, reliablity, responsiblity!!!! Engine noise is excessive. Better on 2001 models, but compared to Honda and Toyota it is LOUD!!
