If it makes you feel better the TPMS on my Mazda drove me nuts until I replaced a couple failed sensors, it randomly decided tires were low for no reason we could figure out. I ended up just getting new sensors until it behaved.For the first two years of my SPA vehicle (2019 XC60) it was fantastic. Had a few recalls (like tailgate struts and wiper arms) but nothing that I'd consider serious. However, just past the two year mark my XC60 has taken a drastic shift into "unreliable". It's been to the dealer three times in the last month. I've spent two weeks of the last four in a loaner car. First issue was a CEL. Then TPMS failure (says all four tires are low, when they're not. Resetting the system clears it for a few minutes but the warning will come back). Now the SRS light is on and a message displays saying I should go immediately to the garage. Dealer says I need a new SRS module, but they're on backorder.
I love the way my XC60 looks. I love how comfortable it is. I like how it drives. Sensus works fine, for me. But I'm getting really nervous about what this vehicle is going to be like, out of warranty.
A couple months ago, I would have defended Volvo and said people claiming unreliability were too nit-picky. But sorry, I am with them, now. There is no excuse for the issues I've had with my XC60. I hope Volvo can get my car sorted out and maybe it'll earn my confidence back, over time? But right now, I'm not happy. Maybe Consumer Reports is on to something?
My experience with Volvo is mixed. I had a 740 Turbo in the family that got passed along for 25 years or so and close to 300,000 miles. It was bought as a dealer demo with about 10,000 miles and from DAY 1 it had annoying issues. Over the decades all kinds of things went wrong with it but none of them ever stopped it from driving and it got sold in running condition. My mother had a 2000 V70XC that was CPO and as soon as the CPO ran out at 100K it went on to a career of endless expensive problems until it got sold and then did the same for the new owners.
My 2005 V70 had a bunch of stuff I had to straighten out when I first got it, total about $500 to DIY it all and has been great ever since. I think it is the last pure Swede before Ford got into it and is a sweet spot as far as problems. None of them equal the reliability of the various Japanese cars we have owned.
Our 2016 V60 has only been through about 3 tanks of gas since we bought it and so far it needed a new secondary battery and no other issues. It will be under CPO past the time it will be paid off, so we'll have a decision to make at that point as to keeping the car or selling it with some warranty left.
