- Cost of repairs and backseat leg room
Purchased As Used
I really like this car, but my two biggest complaints is what it cost to make repairs and its backseat leg room.
"Check engine" light comes on. Dealership tells me it was the rear oxygen sensor. The sensor can be purchased separately. But, apparently, to replace the rear oxygen sensor, one must, also, replace the catalytic converter (why?). This sounds like a serious design flaw. Add to that, the dealership wants $2,200.00 for the replacement. Fortunately, the car runs fine, so the CE light is more of an annoyance.
Unless the people in the back seat are small kids, you cannot seat 5 people "comfortably" in this car. If you are a person that needs plenty of leg room in the front of the car for driving or just comfort, there is virtually no legroom for an adult in the backseat. Also, god forbid if you are in an accident and the front seats become dislodged, you end-up pinning the feet of the people in the back seat. They will not be able to get out. So, there is a good chance that the adults in the back are toast.
Now, that last part is rather extreme, but Volvo really needs to consider adding about 6 to 9 inches to the backseat area for leg room.
If you can sit closer to the dash, then this is a comfortable car for 4 average size adults, but that is it....read morehide
