A lot of car, with all the gizmos.
I was shocked - 30,000 mile service for less than £120!! Full service at 80,000 miles for around £380.
On the road
Front wheel drive curves the 'throwability' but generally smooth, refined and very quiet.
Not bad, but it's a big, heavy machine.
Living with it
Superb. Never not started.
I work for myself and would destroy my business if I ran a flashy car - this is just the ticket (Volvos have the advantage of being a good car without telling everyone how much you're making).
The seats are adjustable in every way, combined with the heated seats in the winter and air-con in the summer it's a nice place to be.
Security and Service
No one had ever broken in, but I doubt they would get far.
Harratts Volvo, Wakefield were top notch. Helpful when I first bought the car (and experienced some problems) they took me through it all, and explained every bit.
Problems and Ownership
I always think it's tapping, but the multipoint inject is peppy and refined.
No problems at all.
Did you buy the car new?
Would you buy the same model again?
Did you buy from the same manufacturer again?
