"I just got my volvo this past summer. It is such an awesome car. Unfortunately I was involved in an accident recently and it is totaled. I CANNOT BELIEVE HOW SAFE I WAS DURING THE ACCIDENT. My airbag went off and the front took all the damage but I am a-okay. Very safe car, will definitely be getting another volvo soon."

"My hubby bought this for me for our anniversary (January 2015). It's a great car and he got it for a great deal. Under 10,000 and when he bought it it was 89,800 miles. Only issue I had with it was the steering lock column when out and had to get it towed and replaced within the second week (over $500) but I still love it. Best car ever, very luxury, very safe, best gift ever,"

"I've had two VW vehicles. Volvo has been much more reliable. Excellent driving dynamics, solid and safe car. Still enjoy driving this car eight years later after signing papers. Plan on buying another Volvo. Retains its value and still looks great. No one believes it is eight years old. If you buy one with cloth seats, you can install new custom leather for $1400-1800. Use synthetic oil Michelin tires and premium gas and this car runs so smooth. Change the cabin filter every 15k miles and change the transmission fluid every 30K for best results. Get the sunroof drains cleaned out periodically for $100 and There's a new better quality molding strip you can use around it to prevent leaks."

"I love this car, but I had no idea how high maintenance costs were on a Volvo. So many issues with things that are normally rare. Love it, but it is a money pit"

"Things happen to these cars that don't happen to Toyotas and Honda's. Wheel bearing going out at 90,000 miles, leaking AC drain that caused two inches of water in the car twice a year, sunroof motor shot at 75000 miles. Headliner fell apart at 80,000 miles. Interior light console fell off at 90,000 miles. I won't buy a Volvo again."

"Volvo is a great car. I would consider a Volvo for my next vehicle mainly due to its safety, but without the sunroof -it may leak. Repairs take up to two weeks. Visit all Volvo dealerships in your area prior to purchasing."
