Overpriced car, parts and servicing and still unreliable

U buy a Volvo, u pay top dollar for parts and servicing by the service book and it all means nothing. I have suffered what so many ppl r going through, a broken auxiliary belt or worse, a broken timing belt at the same time. Coincidence, bad design or bad servicing. A blown engine can cost u between $20,000 and $7000. In my case $9,700. I did two auxiliary belts in a year and Volvo South Yarra always did the servicing. Insurance does not cover this. I do not recommend Volvo. I’m going to try the Asian cars now Show details

Was good, then........$$$$$$

After 65000kms, the manifold developed a crack in it.

Now the really dumb people who designed this vehicle put the 2 x turbo's and the manifold as 1 part.

What does this mean??? If your flimsy manifold develops a crack in it (common) then the 2 x turbos need to be replaced as well. $5000 thanks very much and that's not from a Volvo dealer, so add another $2k Show details

  XC60 MK.II T8 R-Design

Great car ,great price compare with ABB

T8 or Polestar is totally different from D4 T5. Quite and powerful but fun to drive and save massive on fuel.

Mostly about 6L/100 and if you plug in charge a lot you get 3-4L/100. We talking about city driving

on the highway about 6 and with you tow big boat or caravan about 14L. Still, low-speed traffic hold up could be done by battery only which saves you a lot. Show details

Beautiful car to drive, intuitive interior, the wider body takes a little getting use to

Ill add the caveat that Ive only had the car a couple of weeks but to date I love the drive. Brilliantly quiet, well lit at night, intuitive design for driver. Power is not questioned albeit it does draw on fuel more than some of the other comparable Euros. The body of the vehicle is slighter wider than expected and you do have to wary when backing although the sensors are a godsend in this situation. Too many electronics to mention but that seems par for the course in comparable cars. I love the space to get in /out of the vehicle with not having to duck or roll your head over.
At this stage really happy with it, hopefully this doesn't change over the next 5 years we plan to have it. Show details

Great car, counting 200,000 kms and still strong

My car is counting 7 years now and the only issue I ever had was a fuel sensor
These cars are also extremely easy to service requiring only basic tools and a 36mm socket
Also considering the vehicle has over 300hp it’s very good on fuel averaging around 9.2L / 100km
I hope the new ones prove to be as tough as I’m interested to upgrade Show details

Not refined many options missing

Good car but dynamically floored on a hot day the turbo is heat soaked and offers no power gear box offers no paddleshift this is necessary as it needs the manual down shift as the kick down is reluctant. Engine even polyester optimised has a terrible power curve slow too fast no power not v a good map. I would go an x3 on power, plant and kit. The autonomous stuff is a gimmick and not resolved. My verdict is i f you want a st bernard big and comfy mostly trust worthy this is the car if you want real drivability get something else. Volvo isn't like BMW or merc or even Audi these car brands offer more experience and confidence. Volvo doesn't even call to follow up.

I have a 2020 and the brakes slam on when you are reversing when it thinks it sensors something in the rear. It can be quite disconcerting as you think that you have bumped into something.

It doesn't really answer my question. It's like a deal breaker for me if I was going to look at buying another volvo.
