Brakes can go rather quick in this car.
As far as major problems with the car, there has been none.
The only "major" thing to go wrong with the car is the water pump started to leak at 135,000 miles.
The radio works for tapes, but the radio works when it wants to. Sometimes I get stations--most of the time I don't.
It can be difficult to get it up at higher speeds, but once you do, it is a very smooooooth ride.
The door trim is very loose, and is coming apart from the windows.
I really have enjoyed this car ever since I bought it.
I found a great mechanic that works primarily on Volvo. He is reasonably priced and is very honest. I would never take it to the dealer.
I hope to have this car for another 10 years.
For highway, it only gets 23 miles and city around 18-19. But with an almost 20 gallon fuel tank, it is nice not having to get gas too often.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
