A top motor, at a top price
Cruise control stopped working and was highlighted on the messaging screen. Warranty item.
Unable to start the car. Problem was a solenoid fault, resulting in car being stuck in park which had to be towed from home to garage... due to my persistent complaint Volvo made a goodwill contribution to this, as the vehicle was only just out of warranty with less than 25k on the clock.
N/S headlamp bulb blown... replaced at dealership.
Position parking bulb blown recently at 34,000. Replaced myself, but warning message still on display. However I have scoured the Internet for remedies, and come up with an interesting suggestion... slam the boot lid, which I will be trying later.
Despite my few problems, this is by far the best car I have ever had. Handles well, PAS (traction Control), responsive, and being automatic, it's capable of blowing away most people at the lights (LOL).
Equiped with leather interior, looks good, smells good, very comfy. Nice driving on a sunny day with the windows up and the air-con on as low as it goes.
Doesn't have all the 'toys', but with child locks, a 4 CD changer, radio, 8 speakers, as well as those mentioned, it's good enough for me.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
