They typically have high repair costs, but they have comfortable seats and the interiors are ergonomic..

You are going to have be more specific than the brand of Volvo. Which car are you looking at? What years? For example, the S60 which will be redesigned in 2019 has a very up and down track record depending on the year you purchase. In 2016, which is still very new, the car is fairly reliable with fairly no issues. In 2015 however, watch out. Engine problems prevail on that year (the first year with the turbo four engines) and there are paint and trim issues as well. In 2014 it was fairly reliable with some minor suspension issues and electronics concerns. In 2013 the climiate system, some squeaks and rattles, and in car electronics were of concern. In 2012 engine problems (one year after the 2011 redesign) still had some problems, power equipment, and in car elctronics give people grief.

So as you can see, on the S60 alone each year has its own track record. Volvo has been making running changes annually on their cars as Geely (China) took over from Ford, and the quality has been all over the place. Not particuarly good the first year of launch and sometimes not so good the second year either.

So they are recommended with hesitancy on my part - because you don't know what you are getting unless you research that particular model on Consumer Reports, True Delta, or some other site.

The other factors you are looking at: Front seat support and comfort, driving position nad visiblity they are quite good but test drive to see if you like it. I do agree with Lectrofuel on that. Best of luck.
