"WE purchased the car new. After the warrantly expired the rear wheel bearing failed...$600. Volvo did not flinch. One year later the other bearing failed. This time with a lot of noise the split the cost with me. Shortly thereafter the transmission failed. I spent a lot to have them diagnose it and then they finally agreed to replace it after I found web material that a class action suit was pending. There are many more other items that add up to a piece of junk car mechanically."

"I wanted a luxury vehicle that would also give me the peace of mind of safety. After shopping around for months, I found that I'd have to sacrifice one option to have the other or pay out the nose for all. That isn't the case with the Volvo! My XC90 provides me with the luxury and comfort I desired for me and the long-known Volvo safety, dependability, and comfort that I wanted for driving with my kids."

"I have a top of the line XC90 and it has been a lemon since day one. Cheap leather on upholstery. Within the first year, I fought to get my seat leather replaced. It was wrinkled and cracking. Transmission has been replaced by them, my headlights changed to a dull color the first few years and no one can buff it to a shine. the arm rest leather is fake, has peeled completely off, looks awful. This car eats up tires and gas. I only drive it 6 miles a day to work and have to replace it once a year. Brakes wear out constantly. We have 3 other Volvos and this is the worst by far. Our S40 has been a big disappointment too. Will write about that as well."
