This is 7th car I have owned, and by now it is the best one car I have owned. My neighbor advised me buy Volvo, as he was happy with his 1991 model, and I am happy I listened to him.

Faults:

CD player replaced at 12000 km.

Vibration inside front right door during music play. Opening and closing the window always solved the problem. Apparently the cause is an improper alignment of the window in the guiding rail when closed.

General Comments:

Exceptionally good sequential automatic gearbox (Geartronic), capable of quickly adapting to driving style.

Average fuel consumption so far: 20 mpg (at 80% of total distance driven in the city). Unexpectedly high fuel consuption above 200 km/h (125 mph).

Very good brakes with ABS and STC, even on wet/slippery roads.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
