Wow, this is a great car to drive, unfortunately, everything breaks on it.
I normally don't post, but I just had to register to let people know.
Here is the short list of things:
2004 T6, first owner: Front (both) and rear (both x 2) shock mounts (not shocks, the stupid plastic pieces they put in there). Motors in the dash for the air. Replaced two of them now.
$$$ Driver window motor.
The rain drains on the roof got plugged up, when they overflow, it goes onto one of the computers on the driver side.
Turbo is now dead $2000, and the traction/stability computer is dead.
Rear wheel bearings $$ plus the tires they ruined.
I won't own another volvo, ever.
Crush all of them. I was actually yelling in the service center that the shock mounts (getting replaced for the second time in 60K miles) was completely unacceptable and that's not a "normal" wear item on any other car in the world.
The motors in the dash going out that direct airflow.
Are you kidding?
We have had two failures.
I think people don't even know that half these things are broken.
Dash motor, makes a "burring" noise when it's moving.
Shock mounts make a clunking noise when going over small bumps slow.
Rear bearing, humming noise, turbo is a loud burring metallic sound under the hood when you take off, usually turning.
Everything else gives you a "spend $$" message on dash
