a Volvo, know that you can not rely on their maintenance or service department. DO NOT BUY A Volvo if you can't manage a trip to the next closest Volvo service department. (Closest one to Walnut Creek is in San Leandro).
We took our Volvo in for a regular scheduled 30k maintenance and for an entire year it was in and out of their service department with problems stemming from the various work they performed (power steering wasn't working, wheel noise when driving on freeway, oil leak after they replaced a part to fix the wheel that didn't end up fixing the wheel...to name a few). In addition, the seatbelt had a recall on it and when I took it in to get fixed the service manager said there was no fix for it, you just have to ensure every time you buckle it is not hung up on anything.
After each visit I ended up having additional problems with the car so I decided to take it to Mckevitt Volvo in San Leandro. Their Service Department ended up fixing at least 5 problems on parts that Volvo of Walnut Creek replaced unnecessarily or incorrectly. They also replaced my seatbelt due to the recall.
The drive to San Leandro is not convenient. We will not be buying another Volvo due to no reliable maintenance in our local area of Walnut Creek. The management at Volvo of Walnut Creek is useless, they tell your whatever they need to to get you out their door.
