Its a great quality car, from a company that stands behind it.
2010 4dr Sedan 305-horsepower 3.7L V6
5-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Having previously driven a 2003 CL-Type S I have over 7 years of previous ownership experience and over 16 years total driving Honda/Acura products. With regular maintenance these cars are bulletproof and require very little maintenance.

Rock Solid, 19K miles and not a single issue.

The engine was blowing blue within the first 6 months of ownership. The transmission was jerky from day one.
2005 4dr Sedan 270-horsepower 3.2L V6

At 45k miles already have three broken engine mounts, steering rack is leaking and worn excessively, torn control arm bushings, torque converter is starting to fail. Trans will fail around 75k miles.

2008 4dr Sedan turbocharged 208hp 2.5L I5
5-speed shiftable automatic AWD
reported to be superior, back with an excellent warranty
2007 4dr Sedan turbocharged 300hp 2.5L I5
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
still practical
2005 4dr Sedan turbocharged 208hp 2.5L I5
5-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Have owned for 4.5 years. Wife and I purchased based on experiences of 2 family members who had good experiences. We have been stranded once (in driveway) due to faulty shift lock mechanism, otherwise have put 151,000 essentially pain-free KM on this.
2004 4dr Sedan turbocharged 247hp 2.3L I5
5-speed shiftable automatic FWD
So far no unscheduled mantianance required.
2002 4dr Sedan 168-horsepower 2.4L I5
5-speed automatic FWD
The non-turbocharged engine in this car will last forever, with the right maintenance and upkeep. The car only needs to see the dealership once every 7,500 miles, which is nice, and services are not overly expensive.

2004 4dr Sedan turbocharged 300hp 2.5L I5
6-speed manual AWD
Volvo is not willing to take responsibility for the AWD system braking on the R. Many reported issues costing the customer over $2000 to repair.
2004 4dr Sedan turbocharged 300hp 2.5L I5
5-speed shiftable automatic AWD
RELIABILITY, car has intermittent electrical problem that cripples the vehicle with no notice. Dealer has had the car for a combined total of over 6 weeks and still has not fixed the problem. For this reason I will never buy a Volvo again. Google "Volvo electrical problems" and you will see it quite common
2003 4dr Sedan turbocharged 197hp 2.4L I5
5-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Lots of little problems such as the front tires rubbing the inner fender wall when having the steering wheel cranked all the way left or right. Also, began to hear a noticeable valve ticking at 60k miles.
2002 4dr Sedan 168-horsepower 2.4L I5
5-speed automatic FWD
Reliablilty is probably on the lower end of mediocre. This can only be said of my car and I am the second owner. I think most of the components are dependable and well made with a few exceptions. one being the bosch coil packs, they die; a different brand is cheap on ebay to replace (12.00 usd new) and work awesome but about 60.00usd + for one bosch, which suck. period. instrument cluster is finicky in some of these, including mine: (made in phillipines??, not japan etc) I say this b/c most of the car was made in belgium, germany, france and on...Mechanically the car is quite good, I don't expect anything non electrical to go anytime soon. But again, expect some minor to moderate electrical issues, esspecially if like any car it has been in an accident. all the forum horror stories about ETM and limp home mode and all that have been completely a non-issue over a year later for my s60. Volvo followed the recall for my particular car and remedied it before, I assume, it ever became an issue back in 2002.
