My worst ownership experience
Front control arms replaced under warranty at 6,000 miles.
Transmission problems at 8,000 miles. Hard downshift between 2nd and 1st gear.
Replaced three headlight bulbs before 25,000 miles. I also had to replace the license plate bulbs at 32,000 miles.
Experienced difficulty starting the car in cold weather. It ran very rich and required dealer service.
Thermostat stopped working at 28,000 miles. Required replacement.
Blew a high pressure power steering hose at 51,000 miles.
Ball joints wore out at 60,000 miles.
Various electrical problems occurred at 63,000 miles. The power door lock mechanism stopped working. At the same time the rear window wiper stopped working.
This car was very powerful and fun to drive.
However the build quality was terrible and far from what I expected from Volvo.
There is a problem of excessive sun glare reflection on the windshield. The dashboard reflects onto the windshield.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
