I mean I wish it was a V90, but more likely it’ll be a XC90 if anything.

My dad says that it’s almost time to replace our GX since it turns 15 this August. While absolutely nothing is wrong with it (other than the seat heater button light on the passenger side is out), we’ve already started coming up with a list of cars to replace it with. But I was wondering how reliable Volvos can be.

The two cars we’ve “replaced” is a 2000 Odyssey (replaced last July) and a 2000 3.2TL (replaced January 2016). So my parents are used to cars lasting in the family till they’re 15. The main cars in the running right now is:

  • 2013 Lexus LX
  • 2013-2015 Lexus GX
  • 2016 Lexus RX
  • 2017 Lexus NX
  • Toyota Highlander and 4Runner.

There’s kind of an obvious bias in my family. But my dad’s boss got an XC90 and my dad thinks it looks really nice. And we saw an S90 and both my parents thought it was really nice. A Volvo might be joining that list soon. How reliable would an XC90 or V90 be? Would it be able to last about 10-12 years without large maintenance issues?
