Discovered the A/C evaporator coil leak, which had to be replaced one week after purchase.
A/C blower motor failed and had to be replaced at 145000 miles (10,000 miles after purchase).
Replaced the front brake pads at 142,000 (7,000 miles after purchase).
Memory for the seat positions sometimes fails.
Vehicle rear-ended at 140,000 miles. See comments below.
All items noted were easily repaired. One hint: if you need an inexpensive evaporator coil, call the local Volvo junk yard and they will have NEW after market parts for 1/2 the price - and they perform just as well, if not better than anything obtained from a dealer or the original.
When car was rear-ended by a full-size cargo van at 140,000 miles traveling at about 45 miles/hour, estimated damages amounted to over $7,000. The rear door was completely destroyed and the quarter panels buckled under the impact of the cargo van's orange cone holder. The roof buckled slightly above the columns of both rear doors. The sun roof also required some adjustment. Notwithstanding this damage, we were impressed by the safety and sturdiness of the vehicle, especially given the fact that my 2 children were riding in the back. No one was hurt. We were so impressed and loved the car so much, I ended up repairing the car. I was able to do it myself for under $1,000 using after-market and used parts.
