Summary:

A trustworthy bargain as a family car

Faults:

Water pump replaced.

Timing chain replaced.

New exhaust pipe.

Four new tires (worn out due to bad alignment).

General Comments:

The Volvo 360 drives like a tank. It has more than enough power but at high speed it is noisy.

Without power-steering it takes a strong driver to park this tank.

Fuel consumption is rather high comparing to other cars of the same size.

This car is very safe and sturdy.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
