Purchased for safety and reliability of Volvo. Mistake! Wonderful for the first 2 1/2 yr even with multiple recalls, then at 56k mi the problems started. Over last 12 mths I have spent over $4000 on repairs including 4 tire replacement (not the cheap ones!)twice within 10k mi and brake repacement twice within 8k mi. Now AWD is not functioning and the battery goes dead due to malfuctioning module. I am told that I must replace at my expense the AWD module and brake module for approx $3000-$4000! C'mon Volvo that's not normal wear-n- tear...that's a recall! No more Volvos for me!
A reliable, functioning vehicle and a company that stands behind it! And how about interior parts that actually don't fall off...new concept, eh?
