Well, 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!
AWD, 7 passenger seating, the fact that
it is not an SUV. Shoulder belts for
all my passengers.
Quality, reliablity, responsiblity!!!!
Engine noise is excessive. Better on
2001 models, but compared to Honda and
Toyota it is LOUD!!
