I bought my used 2003 XC Volvo with thee highest of hopes!! Aaarrrrgh, my bad. Most comfortable car that I have ever driven and great in the snow but.... The ever so slight noise that I didn't recognize was the AC going bad, which of course, went bad just as my used purchase warranty expired! Boo, my bad again, I didn't purchase an extended warranty. Next, my car computer went bad so the cluster wouldn't quite giving me messages. This was a few months later!! I'm up to ~$3000 in repairs and I haven't owned the car for a year yet! I talked with the shop service manager. He talked like this should be common knowledge about Volvos! He said that his the same problem..it was a 2006 XC!
