This is the third car I've bought from Dyer and Dyer and the sixth Volvo I've owned. It's apparent I have confidence in the brand and the dealership. Price was right and buying experience as painless as possible.
Great SUV, But there are significant problem areas
by Jeffrey from Oak Park
November 6, 2018
I own a lot of Volvo's , but this is my first xc90 (v8 Sport, loaded). Replaced my '10 MB 350 BluTec which blew up. Problem areas (and it can cost a ton of money)- Radiator leaks into trans cooler. Once that happens the tranny is toast. Happened to me within a few weeks of my buying. In the end, it was about a $6k ordeal. Also, the front engine cover idler pulley stud often breaks. Another $1k++ repair. Upper Strut mounts are also a problem. Especially passenger side. Replace only with HD IPD. Fuel economy isn't great, but what can you expect from a v8 SUV weighing nearly 5k lbs.
Despite all the problems (I think some of the problems were anomalies--except radiator, there's a SB on it) it is a very good SUV.
David Windholz was professional, prompt, and on top of detail with my out of state xc60 purchase. I already sent his info to two other people.
Best most reliable car I have owned

Recent trip to Pa. 3100 miles 119 gals gas,26 mpg highway and 2 lane mountain. This car handled back mountain roads like dream even in downpour. I gave it a 4star on interior design because it could use more leg room in second row seating.
My 1995 Volvo 940 estate wagon is hard to get some parts for. A part source was located and the part ordered and installed. A second part has been ordered, because of a fault in the first part. All previous repairs have been successful.

This car meets all of my needs and expectations. It drives beautifully! I would highly recommend this car to everyone. Love the way it handles.
Ken was able to get me in sooner than my scheduled appointment as a result I was there under an hour and back on the road in no time.
The safest car I owned

This car meet all my needs. The car seat is very comfortable and much better than my previous jaguar, previous BMW and previous Mercedes.
Lights are wonderful to drive at nights. Breaks excelent. Best car for me.
The dealership was clean but under construction - bathrooms in sales area was not available. Knew exactly what we came in to buy...Salesman immediately tried to direct us to something he wanted to sell. When we drove what he wanted us to drive, we got him to show us what we wanted to see. Meanwhile, as he tried to park the first vehicle, he backed it up into my wife, hitting her in the back (so much for pedestrian warning device). Long story short, we drove the vehicle we came to see, liked it, made an offer and the salesman told us the Manager said no, and made a counter. We said thanks but no thanks, and as we were driving off the lot, the manager met us and accepted our offer. It is a shame you have to play these games just to buy a car.

This is the second S60 I have owned, previously having had a 2006 S60R. I traded in that vehicle for my current vehicle, an S60 R Design with the Polestar software upgrade. The current iteration of the “R”, although fast, with great brakes, is not a true sports sedan. The previous vehicle accelerated more quickly, tracked truer, and had a suspension more suited to a car billed as a “performance. ” model. Although my newer R-Design is quite fast, and handles quite well, it possesses an inherent “softness” which lowers the fun quotient a bit.
I recently purchased my vehicle and had to get a defect fixed. When I called the service center, I was able to get an appointment and get the problem fixed quickly. Everyone was helpful in explaining the issue, providing a loaner car so I could get to work on time and even cleaned my car!!

Bought this car from a Ford dealership. It has a 60 day warranty associated with the purchase. There was a squeaking coming from the engine, which turned out to be moisture in the carburetor. Also flashed low battery. Apparently, this is a common theme with the Volvo. Battery is in perfect condition, but the dashboard still states there is a problem. I just haven’t bothered to reset it. Mileage is OK and I average about 19 to 20 mpg. Stereo is great. Bluetooth connects well. The ride is fantastic. Engine has a ton of oomph. I love this car. Great value for the price. I paid 14,000 for it with 73,000 miles.
I always depend on my service advisor,Ken, to take good care of my Volvo. Always calls me back and is able to offer reasonable solutions.

The XC90 is a beautiful and functional SUV. There is plenty of storage space, seating is comfortable, and the large screen is very functional. The cameras are extremely helpful. I am so glad I purchased this car.
Came in for some accessories for my new 2019 Volvo XC60. The items were installed in under an hour and the service man helped answer all my questions about my new car.

I added a S90 to my luxury taxi fleet, the base T5 Momentum is plenty to accelerate into the highway and I average 28mpg, my customers seem to enjoy the quiet ride and plenty of leg room, if music is preferred mine has the B&W upgrade stereo that is super fantastic. The car is almost crash proof with all the tech. I am enjoying it and looking forward to adding a 2018 when they reach the used price point that works for my situation.
Tommy helped me order our new XC-40, which came ahead of schedule. Great, friendly service. I constantly felt Confident in my decision making with Tommy. I continue to feel like a quality customer even after I filed all the final paper work.
Most Elegant Form of Swedish Mastery

This vehicle is a true from of luxury and simplicity. The vehicle has great curb appeal and the seats are beyond comfortable. The standard Pilot Assist is a fun feature and definitely helps you out on those long drives and when you get a little tired and sloppy on the road. The only thing I found a little difficult finding on the vehicle is the heated seat controls and the button to open the hood of the vehicle.
Very well designed and built. Exceptionally comfortable. considering that this is the top of the line model the only two complaints would be the less than ample leg room space in for the back seat passengers and the the lack of a power assisted lift gate. Tow features that have little impact on me personally but to impact my passengers.
First time working with Nalley and it was a great experience. Chris was the ultimate professional and was very knowledgeable throughout the process. We will be looking for our next vehicle here also. Thank you again Chris and The Nalley Acura team!

This is my first Volvo, which I purchased for safety reasons after I was the victim of a bad car accident in my Mercedes SUV. This XC60 is amazing for bad road conditions and is fun to drive to the mountains in snowy conditions for skiing. The safety ratings are high, and it handles well for a powerful crossover.
I worked with Jan from Carvana- she was able to explain to me the process, make sure I was comfortable with where it was at, was able to be reached and kept communication open. The pick up process went smoothly and I was able to sell my car without any glitches.

I drove this car for a day, was really comfortable, easy to drive, super cockpit and great ride quality. The new modern look makes it a car you really feel proud to drive. Well done Volvo
