Faults:

Radiator leak.

Unable to check ignition timing due to non standard crankshaft pulley.

The air conditioning needs a recharge.

28mpg at 85mph on French autoroutes with 6 people on board.

General Comments:

Refined, comfortable, pretty fast estate that can carry a lot more than your standard Volvo estate. A lot more fun to drive as well, for such a big car - 16 feet long!!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
