This is my third Volvo. I have been VERY disappointed with the poor quality sun roof. After having it repaired five times (three under warranty) I finally gave up. In addition, this car eats brake pads and ended up needing new pads every 9-12 months. Cup holders in interior are a joke.
This is my third Volvo. I buy them for safety. It may be my last though. I am tired of mystery bits of plastic falling off constantly. I've replaced the sunroof twice and the roof still leaks. The cup holders are useless. The leather on the doors is pulling off. The brakes need replacing 1-2 times a year. the driver's visor won't stay up and there is no way to repair it without replacement. It is a comfortable ride and I love the look of the interior. The turning radius is impressive for a car this big and heavy.
This was my first car I recieved for a graduation present in 2008. it had over 100,00 miles on in then. It lasted about 5 more years. Sunroof leaked when it rained. it would all pool up and then you when you made a turn all of it would drip on you at once. Inside parts did start falling off, all the cloth on the roof finally came off. I used the cheapest gas on it and didn't take the greatest care of it. Seat controls stopped working so I was stuck at one position forever My alternator broke near the ned and I had to replace that. Then at about 180,000 miles the engine and battery started having issues. It couldnt keep charged. It would drive sometimes but would randomly turn off. The radio wasn't the greatest. The sunroof was nice. I would say it's a slightly above average car.
