Would you buy another Volvo?

From a US survey: "Those who can afford more expensive cars also tended to be more capricious, with only 30 per cent of Volvo owners likely to buy another car from that brand..."

Yes, I am a first time Volvo owner as well and still remain favourably impressed with my XC60.

For a while I considered updating to the MY12 model but the cost is prohibitive here, about $30,000 change-over margin to get more or less the same. I will let the idea mellow with time. The X3 with 3.0 TD appeals, for just a little extra money.

This is my second Volvo, I had a S60 D5 before the XC60.
I'm not planning on changing cars for another 2 years, but already feel I've painted myself into a corner as at the moment there's nothing else I can see that I'd rather own, than a XC60, so it might be another one of these.

This is my second Volvo first was V70 which was very good but lacked the ground clearance I need when I am in Italy. The XC60 is very good and has no problems on dirt roads or up in the mountains. I usualy cover 600 miles each day traveling to Italy with no problems, I went four times last year. The seats are great.

This is my first new Volvo (previously owned a 1997 V40) and I have to say that I would definitely buy another based on experience so far. Out of the cars I've owned, I would definitely buy another Fiat, would have bought another SAAB, wouldn't ever buy another Renault or Citroen again (with the exception of a 2CV)! I'm not a huge fan of German cars so it's not so much a question of brand loyalty, but there wouldn't be much to tempt me away from Volvo at the moment.

Third Volvo for me, I suggest that says something about the cars and the service I get from my dealer

Since I've just bought my 13th Volvo, I guess the answer is YES....

A fairly emphatic 100% of the owners who responded here to date are likely to buy another Volvo.

I wonder what has skewed the JD Power results for the US? Perhaps the Chinese ownership? Perhaps the lack of diesel models available? Perhaps poor after-sales service?
