Volvo is the best - mid class BMW
Air heater leaks water.
Water shutoff switch fell apart.
Clear coat peels off of the hood.
Fuel indicator works intermittently, as well as mileage count, so it is not 160K, but close to 200K I suppose.
Awesome car for $1500.
I drove it all across America: Texas to California and back, Texas to Seattle and Seattle to Florida. No problems whatsoever.
Engine overheated in California mountain pass, but still worked well with air heater on.
Steering wheel a bit stiff and tends to turn right.
Too little engine, but very durable.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
