I loved the design of these Cross Country wagons, very handsome, and the interior fit and finish is really beautiful in this car, but otherwise this think is an abosule MESS. Stay away at all costs. I have owned two other Volvos in the past, but this piece of junk has really soured me on Volvo. Its too bad...but I think the 2000 and 2001/2002 are really bad reliability wise. Ive had to replace the transmission, there is always something going wrong with the car, and its so crazy expensive to get it fixed, at least $500 to $1000 each time it goes to the shop. Im dumping this piece of junk before it eats my lunch.
Interior seats are very comfortable, Interior design of car is great, and the exterior of car is distinctive and interesting.
Make a better car that lives up to Volvos claim. The only reason they are the safest cars on the road is because they are in the shop being fixed for 1/2 their existence!
