I have owned several Volvos in the past. I always had exceptional luck and always a very positive experience. As a result I didn't investigate the kind of experience others were having with this year and model.
I later read of numerous problems and have experienced many of them myself.
After purchase, I read of endless problems in numerous blogs. One in particular stands and should be heeded: Don't purchase!! "run away"
I have to say that after owning many, many used cars over the years, this car has been the absolute worst of all. The only other that was even close was a Saab 900 (complete engine failure).
NO MORE VOLVO FOR ME!!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
