This vehicle was suppose to be our "reliable" car. We both own cars from the 60's & 80's & bought this modern luxury based on the reputation of Volvo & their "high mileage" club thinking it could be our "road trip" car . As it turns out, it is the least reliable car I've ever owned & fits better into a "high cost of owning" club. We have spent more on this car in the last 10 month than both the other cars we own in the last 2 years! There is constantly a warning light of some sort on in the vehicle regardless of whether or not we have it serviced at the dealer or specialist.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
