For those who prefer reliability and economy over style and technology
The car started losing coolant after 180.000 km. Ever since I got it, it made funny noises when I started it, until the clutch pedal was pressed.
The car was very reliable and even though it looks a bit odd and dated, it was a rather fast car due to the high torque of the engine. It was also a very economic car.
For those who like comfort and a lot of gadgets, this is not exactly an ideal car considering the long options lists of Volvo dealers.
Given the fact that customers pay a premium price for their Volvo, one would expect a premium service from Volvo dealers. Nothing of the sort can be expected from Belgian Volvo dealers, alas!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
