In their own words

I'm coming up on my first year of ownership of a 2016 XC90 (bought approved used from Volvo). Having had large 4x4s from most of the German brands I can honestly say there's a lot to like about this car, but it's just not reliable, amongst other issues we've had a problem with the fuel system on our car for the entire time we've owned it, which is now causing the car to break down and more worryingly cut out whilst driving. Volvo as a brand really don't seem to care, massively surprised, everything I thought I knew about Volvo was totally wrong. Dealers are very helpful, but don't seem to know how to fix the car. Now looking at either letting my wife and children drive around in a car that could cut out at a busy junction or lose a ton of money. Please beware!
