I haven't formed a complete opinion yet, for this is my first Volvo
My A/C has completely died.
The electricals for the windows have gone bad, and needs to be replaced.
The electricals for the power seats are starting to go.
The center arm rest has broken off, and the cup holders have broken.
Roof lining is starting to droop.
Check engine light is always reading tons of codes.
Oil dipstick handle has broken (the entire tubing, and as such needs to be replaced now to accommodate the newer dipsticks, as they are much longer than the older ones)
The fuel injector ECM (computer module) has just gone bad and needs to be replaced... as of now, the car is not running.
Regardless, I still LOVE this car very much! Handles the road GREAT, and is very comfortable and great on gas.
The dash makes a lot of creaking sounds, which is a bit annoying, but overall, the interior and exterior of the car are in great condition.
Repair and maintenance is costly, but being that it is a 16 year old car, I don't buy NEW parts, I buy USED, which makes up in the cost... like ALL used cars... you never really know what you are getting until you drive it for a while.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
