It's a great car, but that view could change, depending on how Volvo respond to this issue
Transmission failure, and I suspect this is the second time it has failed, which is not impressive, given I have had the car from new, and it does about 10000 miles a year!
It is a great workhorse of a car, but has some major issues that are symptoms of a new lack of quality and transparency... possibly because Volvo changed ownership?
I think the transmission failed in the first few weeks of the car being delivered new to me, and has just failed again. I am not very impressed, as every other new car I have owned has never ever had a transmission problem.
It also seems that a lot of owners have had this same issue, so why do Volvo not make any mention in their monthly magazine or do a recall?
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
