Quality control on Volvo has been abysmal from the late 80's well into the new century, (even with Ford in control of the company).
It is a little better now, but Ford says it wants to unload the "Premium Auto Group" (PAG) of which Volvo is a member.
But the new Volvo S80 is sure good looking, and I like it a lot. The resurrected Ford Taurus/Mercury Sable is supposed to be be based on that design, so all three of them should be safe cars, but I wonder how the quality and durablilty will be on the S80, Taurus and Sable.
You'd be taking a big gamble if you bought one and were forced to find out.
