The Volvo name literally translates from Latin as ‘I Roll’. Whether this was intended in reference to the vehicles they would manufacture, or the ball bearings they were to manufacture we are not sure. When Volvo did start producing vehicles they were made to stand up to the Swedish terrain and climate, which is perhaps why they always seemed to get a reputation for quality and safety elsewhere in the world. Over the years Volvo cars has been owned by a few different people, firstly AB Volvo, then Ford MC, and now owned by Zhejiang Geely Holding Group.
While we are all well aware of Volvo as a car manufacturer, and many of us may also know they make trucks as well, many might not know they also make construction equipment, marine equipment, and even have an IT arm. Amongst the trucks is Volvo trucks, Mack Trucks, Renault Trucks, and UD trucks. Although Volvo has diversified into all these areas, its first purpose was as a car and ball bearing making company. Some of these have since been split into different companies, but the branding remains.
Owning such a big stake in Nissan has led to the two automakers working together on many projects. All the projects they carry out together come under the banner of the Renault-Nissan Alliance, which is the fourth largest automotive group in the world. There biggest current area of investment is in electric vehicles, where between them they have pumped more than £3 Billion into research and development.
In Volvo’s Own Words… The moment today becomes yesterday, it also becomes history. And the longer the story, the more to tell. 1927 marks the starting point of Volvo cars. Since then, a steady flow of Volvo models have left the different Volvo plants, making automotive history. All with their own story to tell.
In Our Words… Volvo has been struggling with image for a few years now, and with safety being their biggest selling point, it hardly stirs the emotions. The addition of the new R models and the Polestar upgrade may help to change that. Overall Volvo have built reliable solid cars, but generally expensive to repair.
Volvo Maintenance… People are keeping cars on the road longer than ever, meaning more are turning to performing repairs themselves to keep the costs down. Volvo have always been strong technologically, meaning they are not always the easiest car to work on, but most general maintenance can be performed at home, and big savings made.
Interesting Volvo Fact… Volvo is the largest Swedish company in terms of revenue, and also the biggest private employer in the country

Having a lot of problems with sensors, particularly the throttle sensor. The cost of these sensors seems to be out of proportion to the cost of other parts.

Had the car from 4mths old, now had it for 17yrs and it just keeps on running. Batteries and electrics seems to be the weak link though but apart from that, super reliable and just passed its MOT without a problem.
