Can anyone just... riff on some general Volvo car buying subjects with me? I'm researching S90s. I've done a few test drives and I dig the car. Maybe this is my next daily driver commuting car?
S90 production began in Sweden at the Torslanda factory, but soon the 2017 S90 series was discontinued and the S90L began production at the Daqing factory in China.
The S90L has an extra 5" or so longer wheelbase then the S90, and a panoramic sunroof, but otherwise remains.. the same? Does anyone have any articles or anecdotal evidence that the S90L is a well made vehicle?
Were all Torslanda produced S90's the 2017 T6 AWD?
I don't want to appear xenophobic, I just don't trust "new" factories as well as I trust a 56 year old Swedish factory.
I am wary of manufacturers and new vehicles in general, as we recently had a new vehicle that was a lemon. Granted, that "lemon" that we were recently saddled with came out of a venerable German factory. Maybe I'm just xenophobic and want a car made in Sweden?
It's a little disturbing to me to read the complaints in this forum about leather dashboards needing replacement and Pilot Assist sensors needing replacement. Is this the wrong time to update my family fleet of vehicles with Volvos? Should I just be patient, buy a used 2015 S60 with low miles, and come back in a year or two? Or should I throw caution to the wind and park a 2017 S90 and a 2019 V90 (OSD pickup) in my driveway??
There is a 2017 S90 with 20000 miles on it for 32,000 USD. It is not a volvo certified pre-owned vehicle. Is this a trap? Have people been quietly returning their S90s due to manufacturer complaints?
Sorry for the wall of text. I know I'm new to the forum, but I've been reading this site for a while before registering. My 2001 V70 2.4t with 173,000 miles is one of my all time favorite cars, and sits in a coveted garage space at home right now. Thanks to this forum it is also getting a transmission flush...
