do the work yourself.
If you do that, you'll have a fine time. If you take it to a shop, I hope you're rich.
I'm at 164k miles, and I'd be VERY disappointed if I got any less than 250 out of it!

You got a dud here. Sorry for the luck.dan_burdock wrote:I'd look else where my 850t5r has been the most unreliable car I have ever owned. Bought with 50 thousand on clock from reputable main dealer. 1 owner from new, full volvo service history. Had it for one year. New ABS tracs pump + ecu over a grand, air con faults totaling 500 gbp, scuffed tyres 2 sets after 10,000. 2 wheel bearngs, famous PNP switch, new lamda, failed CAT and now after 1 year I am sick of it, it has never been right since first purchase, I have had loads of time off work. I have owned 2 alfas which I thrashed the hell out of, tyres were the only real cost,
I have never thrashed the volvo, I can't for fear of some costly bill, When they say Volvo for life, they mean once you have bought it you can't get rid of it.
