      I've been a mechanic for 21 years and have been driving Volvo for 14 year's... I've had nothing but quality and a fantastic driving experience. Bring me all ur Saab's as well I'll get you parts.. and if you would have spent more money on ur chainsaw it would of been made in Sweden. Just saying 😁

      Sorry Scotty, but what you were saying about Saab is totally wrong. I own a 2001-9-3 Convertible and a 2007 Wagon, both 2.0 Turbos and work on both of them myself. Believe me, every time I need a part I have a big choice of suppliers and parts are cheap. Not just new parts either, reconditioned cylinder heads, alternators, starters are also readily available. And if you are buying a later model, like my 2007 9-3, virtually all the parts are GM anyway.

                One thing to correct. Geely isn’t a small car manufacturer. They were the 1st Chinese car company that knew how to build cars by themselves. Geely also has one of the best electric car technologies in the world.

                          The biggest Volvo factory has always been in Ghent, Belgium. It is true that Volvo’s labor force in Sweden is very happy, but it is also very, very expensive. That’s why Volvo has always built a lot of cars outside of Sweden. This has always been in Ghent, Belgium. Now more and more in China. Once the chinese think they understand the technology, they will close the factory in Belgium.

                                          People are willing to pay over $1,000 for a phone assembled in China; why not a vehicle? I just bought an XC60 that was assembled in China and couldn’t be happier.

                                              i really doubt volvo is a safe, reliable car anymore.. because chery sure aren't.. if volvos are - it would mean that the chinese make the best cars in the world which i highly doubt. you make fun of jaguar and range rover yet you think chinese volvo is going to work well.. i doubt that

                                                still the swedish design, and quality, only made in another place,
                                                but i hate the fact that volvo is not swedish anymore, and i see its going in a bad direction

                                                  Common, even iPhone is built in China. There is nothing wrong to amplify Swedish influence through Chinese factories.

                                                            I don't think that Ford lost out on their ownership of Volvo. The brand Volvo lost out. Because, Ford had done nothing in terms of serious R&D, or any serious updates to existing models, throughout their ownership of volvo. What they did was reskin those existing Volvo models into Ford vehicles. The 500/Taurus, Fusion, Flex, and the current Explorer are all Ford models that were based on Volvo platforms.

Been doing extensive research from joining forums and groups in FB to learn more from MG owners about how their car is doing and taking opinions from respective mechanics like scotty. Ive concluded that they are on Hyundai's late 2000s level, which is prettt much reliable.

                                                                            • Jermaine Boxchevy

                                                                                The largely untested (but more inexpensive and failure-prone) technology, critical engine parts made of plastic (that melts in warm climates) or made of weak and cheaply plated metals, continuously re-sourcing for the cheapest brake pads, exhaust parts, molex/electrical intermittent harnesses, etc, and of course the ever-present "brand-dang-new"electronics gadgetry that naturally fails first, all guarantee an unforgettable investment. DIE, VOLVO, DIE ! You now have the reputation of an old whore with EVERY DISEASE.
