Do not agree with Christy Tilney-- only 1.6 D but can give loads of pleasure and assurance.

Been a nightmare past 2.5y years with over £3000 spent on problems with additive dosing module //(did not know car had this fitted--nor I recon did my independent garage at 35K service time)//knackered pump and replenish fluid. EGR valve independent and main dealer for "anti skid warning message" removal..
Replacement reqd. Three attempts by main dealer to solve " limping" running. Solution turbo control valve replaced..
Broken seal at injector -- failed to notice at service (huntly garage) Repair at specialist diesel injector
firm in Aberdeen ( they had 3.5 y back 75K replaced a supplied by me DPF)..
Good for4 months then nov2017 " limping" again. Tried replacement fuel filter (my independent garage again at my request). Then main dealer computer says ::"MAF and Differential pressure sensor for feedback on DPF... ARE you learning even still following if not bored stiff with epistle from mykwot.?
Anther independent fitted said parts and now I have a working Volvo S40 1.6D 90K miles to enjoy...
Where in all this is some liability from Volvo for emissions strangulation of a diesel engine?
