Replaced windshield (leaked).
Replaced motor mount.
Air conditioning doesn't work anymore.
I have replaced many other small things, the above are the major problems.
Am having a problem the last few months where it will just not start after driving it around for a while. If I wait 45 minutes or so it will start right up. Since it won't do it for the mechanic I haven't been able to have it fixed. I was, however charged a pretty penny to have my mechanic tell me this.
I bought this car for $1500, and have spent just as much on repairs alone.
Up until about a year ago it has been a good car, and has only left me stranded (for real) on the side of the road once.
This car does have a lot of miles, but it has just gotten to be such a burden lately that I am selling it.
I have noticed that this particular Volvo wagon doesn't seem to be as common as others. Do others agree that this year and model is not so great?
I would buy another Volvo if I could afford to get one much newer, which I don't see happening anytime soon, so I will probably have to avoid Volvos for a while.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
