Presently at 93,000 miles. Yes I have had the odd quirky issue, but the only major item was a radiator replacement. Transmission has been fine and 'baby' runs quite well. I use my wagon to transport mulch, stone, plants in the summer and she's always been a jewel. I love this wagon and plan on keeping for a very very long time.
Safety!!! Creature comforts: Heated seats are wonderful. Radio excellent. Whole passenger compartment was / is well designed.
Cannot start the car, lock it, and leave it running in the driveway to warm up during winter. If I am not in the seat while the car is running, the doors will not lock. Talked to Volvo dealership about this, there is no way around.
