I had hoped that my Volvo experience would have lasted a lot longer than a couple of years
Headliner coming unglued.
The car will not start.
The paint and finish is very good. I get a lot of looks and comments when it is cleaned and waxed.
The car gets better than expected gas mileage.
So far this car is very reliable, and has been used to "save" my neighbors on several occasions, meaning I have come to their rescue because I have one of the most reliable vehicles any of them have ever seen.
This car was amazingly reliable up until yesterday, when a popping noise was heard and now it will not turn over at all. I have checked the battery, and it now will not take a charge. I inspected the engine bay, and found the battery insulator cover has been charred and the positive post has evidence that it flared up. The insulator could have saved my car from a car fire! Right now we are trying to figure how everyone will get to work in the morning.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
