Good, solid, easy to maintain car, purchased for A$4000, which I believe makes it good value
Drivers side front seat slightly worn, and the seat belt has worn through seat material.
This car was a one owner low mileage car, which has had only limited use the last few years of the previous ownership. Due to an unknown service record, I have had the cambelt replaced, and also had a new crankcase ventilation kit installed.
Car had a check engine engine light and SRS lights displaced at time of purchase. The oxygen sensor was replaced and the SRS reset by VOLVO specialist, and I have had no further problems.
Front disc rotors on car need replacement, and I have bought replacement rotors (Brembo) at approximately half the quoted price of genuine parts.
This car is a very comfortable vehicle on highway. It's not a performance vehicle, but is quite adequate.
I have found it to be reasonably economical; 32MPG at 110kmh on the open road.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
