Volvo is well-known for making extremely safe and comfortable cars that are great for families or daily driving. While they aren’t the most extravagant luxury cars, they are practical, and elegant, & maintain many of the creature comforts that you’ll find in a high-end European car.

As far as reliability goes, most models are about average. While most of their vehicles are well-built, some have had recurring problems, and repairs can add up quickly.

Are Volvo parts expensive?

Being a luxury brand, Volvo auto parts are typically more expensive than the average brand. However, they are among the most affordable to own and maintain compared to other luxury brands, like BMW or Audi. In one study, Volvo was ranked as the fourth most expensive car brand to own due to costly repairs, parts, and labor.

Owners of these vehicles may spend more on maintenance costs and auto repairs, but they can rest assured they are driving in a safe & comfortable vehicle.

Volvo Transmissions

If Volvo has one weak spot in its reliability score, it’s its transmissions. While most Volvo transmissions don’t cause problems until well after 100,000 miles, some are known to fail early.

The worst culprits were transmissions in Volvos from the 2000s. Several models, such as the V70, XC90, and S40 are guilty of hard shifting, jerking, or complete transmission failure.
