Overall reliability

Confortable, safe, economic motoring.

Under UK system car costs £30 p a tax, gives a real world fuel consumption of just over 50 mpg, and hasn't needed any repairs other than emissions EGRV revisions, fitted free by Volvo. Car has annual service / MOT at main agent and has needed nothing else apart from consumables = tyres. Main problems with ownership have been, in order of priority, no handbook / manual to explain massive amount of tech on car (so all switched off), no rear wiper fitted to these saloons, awkward position of rear fog light switch, no front parking sensors (it is a large car to park). The ride comfort, particularly seats, are superb, the car has a very solid feel to it yet handles corners well, Other than above extremely satisfied and not sure - apart from XC40 - what to replace it with when the time comes. I do a few runs of 350+ miles on family visits and, despite having a bad back, never suffer any fatigue.
