1994 Volvo 480 from UK and Ireland
What can you say; electrics are dodgy, but that's because they were built by Renault, as are some of the interior parts... bonnet etc. The plastic body panels were also built by Renault, who at the time were the world leaders in that sort of thing.
Electrics are the only let down for this car; that's all you can say. Other than that, service it regularly and do all the usual routine things, and they just keep going.
People don't realise how quick they are, but again a Renault engine, same as in the Renault 19 GT... no more to say.
I was hit in the front a few months back. The guy reversed into me in his Mitsubishi; as he pulled forward his bumper fell off. I had to touch up 2 scratches on the paintwork; nuff said, typical Volvo tank like build.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
