1999 Volvo S80 2.9 from North America
The car drives well, but is not very reliable
My electronic control unit (air conditioner blower, defrost e.t.c) stopped working at about 140,000 miles, and no one can fix the problem except the dealer.
The car needs a software download. I have had several warning lights on for a while now with several sensors not working (e.g my coolant level is OK, but the damn warning sign is always on. Same to ABS Brake warning sign.) It's annoying that only the dealer can fix the problems, especially when they can't get you on schedule for at least 2 weeks.
I will definitely not buy another S80 after spending over $3000 in repairs in the last 4 years.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
