Most recent consumer reviews


Highly reliable. Never let me down over 15 yrs.

I loved everything about the car. But it is a 2005 and does not have the safety and navigation features my children tell me I need. (I'm 75.) Otherwise I would keep it.


Great performance, comfort, and reliable

Best bucket seats Volvo ever made. High performance vehicle that provides comfort and great mpg. Super fun car to own with great reliability and handling.


Really reliable car

The car works great. Everything works good. There is absolutely no issue with the car. There is good amount of boot space and legroom in the car. All tires are new.
