Safe but unreliable.

ReviewBought this car new. It was a very comfortable car and drove smoothly for a couple of years. After 2 years and 13k miles, transmission problems arose. Transmission problem temporarily fixed with some software upgrades. However, at 56k miles, the car jolts between gears and it needs an entire new transmission. I have read this is a problem with this model. Volvo NA claims no responsibility and that the car is simply past warranty. The company hung up on me! Transmission failure has resulted in numerous other problems with engine mounts and suspension. This vehicle has serious mechanical problems. Beware.
Best FeaturesThe car is spacious and versatile in its seating arrangements.
Worst FeaturesImprovement in the mechanical reliability is suggested. Better consumer service and protection is advised.
