How Reliable is a Volvo? Ask Consumer Reports

It's a question we sometimes hear from new or potential Volvo owners...."are these cars reliable?" Well, you could ask our longtime service customer Selden Cooper, who has put over 1 million miles on his 1987 Volvo 240, or you could simply take a look at the latest reliability report from Consumer Reports (more of a household name, we admit).

Volvo ranks in the top 10 auto makes, ahead of other household names like Honda, Subaru, Ford, Nissan, Hyundai...and a lot of others. This survey is based off of a list of 1.1 million vehicles owned by real people, so it's a lot more than hearsay.

But there's more to owning a vehicle than reliability....cost of ownership is also another important factor. It's in this area too that Volvo shines, as each new Volvo comes standard with 3 years of complimentary factory scheduled maintenance. In addition, Volvo service intervals are every 10,000 miles, which means fewer trips to the dealership for maintenance.
