Last a long time needs maintenance rarely.

I love the reliability of my Volvo however the cost of the parts is extremely expensive when the parts go out you have to go to Volvo to make sure it's done right.

- David B

That Volvo's last a long time.

I love the durability of Volvo's. They are very stylish and my gas mileage is not bad. I dislike the price for repairs when need. They get a little pricey.

- Lisa S

It is expensive to repair.

It is reliable and is very easy to maintain. It is however expensive to repair and a manual. Comfortable ride.
