Caradisiac's reliability notice

Obviously, Volvo is going to stay in people's minds as a brand that is synonymous with strength and reliability. Right about this second generation XC60. A little less on older models which used PSA mechanics for example … But that's in the past.

No, the second generation XC 60 is born. A few electronic messes here and there, but nothing recurring. Some rapid tire wear is noted, but it is always subjective, and the original tires are often softer than the aftermarket. Frankly, you can go (almost) with your eyes closed.

Thanks
