An extremely well-maintained, one-owner, superb condition P2 V70R -- excellent
Nothing yet -- but I've had it for only about two weeks so far.
This car is from Northern Alberta, and has been maintained at Volvo of Edmonton, and then at a smaller private dealership after the warranty expired. It has had one fastidious female owner, whose son is co-owner of the smaller private dealership. It has extremely comfortable heated Atacama leather with virtually no wear, 6-speed manual transmission, factory sub, no child seats, never been smoked in, no pets, almost 160K KM (100K miles). Cosmetically it is perfect.
The vehicle has been superbly maintained and is in excellent, first-class condition. Before purchase, the independent mechanical inspection (no connection whatsoever to the dealership) came back 100% in all categories. The vehicle came with new brakes and eight (8) factory "R" pegs in great condition, 4 Summer Falkens (90% left) and 4 Winter studded Nokians with only 3000KM (currently installed).
The engine and transmission perform flawlessly (so far). It is very easy to drive. Mechanically there is no vibration, strange noise, lurching, grinding, slipping, whining, looseness, weird smells or smoke, hesitation, or anything at all that I have yet noticed. The vehicle is quiet, tight, a great deal of fun to drive, comfortable, very fast, and exceptionally safe. It feels new in every respect. Electronically, everything seems 100%, especially all controls (e.g., DSTC, tuneable suspension, etc.).
Although in very early stages of ownership, I am very impressed and in fact am much happier that I thought possible. Even the stereo is outstanding -- best I've ever heard in any car, ever.
So, I am hopeful -- we'll see how things work out!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
