My parents and I have all have this model Volvo. We have all had to put thousands of dollars into them since we bought them. My parents bought theirs brand new. I purchased mine used. Everything from transmission problems to cosmetic and computer issues. We have had it all. The only thing I will give this car is that its good in the snow with a great pair of winter tires. I will never ever buy another Volvo. Trading this car in next week for a Lexus is 250 awd :) Can't wait for this money pit to be out of my driveway.
