I've owned 3 Volvos before this one & drove each 1mto around 150K moles or more without any (repeat: ANY) mechanical problems of any kind.
My new S80 now has 24K miles & is the best one yet. It gets 37+ mpg on the road, 24+ mpg around town is comfortable to ride in and an easy delight to drive.
Volvo & it's dealers really take care of you & are also delightful to deal with.
I can afford whatever car I choose but for almost 50 years it's been nothing but Volvos. I've never been disappointed.
I went in to look at a specific car to see if I would like it in person. Turns out I do! Alex greeted us right away and made the process very easy for me to come to my decision. My payments and total price were made achievable to me plus I received way more for my trade in than I thought I would get. He even answered questions I faced on the upgraded technology via text a couple days later.
Extremely comfortable, smooth ride.

I am very pleased with the handling of this vehicle, the comfort of the seats, the gas mileage, the design of the vehicle and the included amenities.
Smothers European Volvo is a great dealership. Friendly knowledgeable service. A first class outfit. That is why I have now purchased my 4th Volvo from them, and hope I'm still around for a 5th.

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.
Fastest, most hassle free car purchase of my Life!

Amazing buying experience at Smothers Volvo for a new Volvo S60 T5 AWD. I purchased my previous Volvo XC60 from this dealer 5 years ago ( love that car, still going strong) and I had not been back to the dealer since ( they are quite a distance from my home) and didn’t recognize dealership- it’s been renovated and very modern - really impressive. I had spoken to the salesperson Ron Cope extensively about the car I was interested in and about my trade and we’d agree on the selling price of new car and a tenative price for my trade. When I arrived, Ron was waiting for me and my new car was waiting all prepped. He handed me the keys and let me test drive and inspect the car as he go the used car manager to examine my old car. When I returned from test driving he informed me of the old cars value (exactly what was originally promised) and he immediately started the paperwork for the sale of the car. I am not exaggerating when I say from that point to driving away in my new car was one hour!! The finance manager quickly had all my paperwork completed and I signed off all the documents in 10 minutes and after a comprehensive review of my car’s features by the specialist I was driving home smiling playing my tunes on the car’s outstanding stereo system. Just a really impressive and relaxing car buying experience - best I’ve ever had!
Exceptional vehicle and truly recommend it!

Between check engine lights and massive water leaks and worn out brakes at 20k miles this truck isn’t worth the hype. The made in China stamps I see on a lot of the interior parts confirm this thing is cheap. The dash board leather peeling off and did mention water leaks. Also still uses too much oil,factory says pistons and rings are no good oil light comes on.
I love taking my car to Smothers European! It always runs exceptionally well after visits and I KNOW my vehicle is in good hands. I have 100% confidence and trust in the staff at Smothers. Everyone is knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful with my questions they've likely heard from every other customer. Truly an exceptional business. Thank you, Jeff, Alex, Angie, and everyone!

I bought it used and owned for about two years when the transmission went out at 143000 miles. I later found out online that they are notorious for having bad transmissions. Costs a fortune to replace. I ended up junking the car. Broke my heart.
I bought the 2015 XC70 car through Smothers and know every-one there. The XC70 is my 9th Volvo, presently garaged next to the fully restored 1971 1800E. Most of them were acquired used and Smothers has always been helpful with minor service issues and with good advice and parts for my own work on these cars. The lastest vehicle is one of three, picked up at the factory in Göteborg. The other two: The 1966 P1800 and the 1971 142E. Smothers - excellent! Søren B., Saint Helena, California (yes - I'm Danish)

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.
The sales person was amazing! I had spoken with him the day before and expressed interest in the car. I mentioned that I would be by in the morning with my husband. He already had the car being detailed when we arrived. The finance process was seamless and each person we met was friendly and personable.

Good looking, very comfortable, good handling, 2.5T is economical, very convenient in every way, 4wd is awesome, it was hard to give it up when trading.
Ron was awesome! He communicated clearly. There was no confusion and the process was very fast. My husband and I were both extremely satisfied with the ease of the transaction. If you are interesting in becoming a Volvo owner in the Bay Area, go to Smothers and ask for Ron!
Unique body styling, not your typical SUV.

Sleek interior, comfortable seats, expansive headroom, sufficient storage capacity, above average gas mileage. Provides solid driving and handling experience. Easy turning radius and good visibility from interior.
Just purchased a 2016 Audi Q5 for my wife's birthday! It was by far the best vehicle purchase I've ever had....Ron and John were terrific to work with and they were very fair on the price we negotiated. I drove two hours to test drive the car and it was worth the effort. The car was parked out front when I arrived, it was totally detailed and I didn't feel pressured to buy the car. Paperwork was easy and they even drove the car to my home at no extra charge. If you are in the market for a used car or a new car I would highly recommend you take the time to visit this dealership!

Sooo comfortable, roomy, and stylish! I am so happy with the purchase. The car drives like a dream! The interior is as beautiful as the exterior. It is sporty and luxury mixed in one car.
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.
Super & Turbocharged engine gives this car a high thrust to weight ratio! Lots of safety features. Very comfortable and looks great. A bit pricey. Overall reliability is good but bells and whistles sometimes need adjusting, all under warranty though.
Initially we were looking at the Range Rover Discovery and stumbled onto the Volvo XC60. As we compared the two we found the XC60 to have more technical, comfort and safety features. My husband is 6.6' and he says it's a much more comfortable ride for him than the Range Rover as well. We are very happy first time Volvo owners! Remembering a commercial slogan from our youth, " At Volvo we don't offer any rebates. Of course, when you build a good car you don't have to pay someone to buy it!"
I love that they can't sell it in the U.S. anymore so its cool factor went way up!I love Volvos and have always driven them so I'm partial. This car is very fast, heavy doors, backseat too low for anyone to sit comfortably for long.
This car was designed for people with back and neck issues. Totally comfortable and offers lots of control for sitting and driving long distances. I love the stereo and sound system. Touch controls right at my fingertips makes this car super easy to use. It makes driving a delight. The smooth lines of the exterior are sleek and elegant. What a beautiful vehicle!
This vehicle is easy to handle, clean and like new. It is comfortable to drive and easy to get used to where the dash switches are located. I like the feature of a cover over the back luggage compartment in this wagon.
