I was told and have found it to be correct, they are reliable cars. Not as reliable as a Honda or toyota, but longer lived than domestics and the other current Europeans. As the above poster demonstrated, they can be quirky electrically. Mechanically, I’ve known of several in the 200k+ range. My daughters s60 just turned 170k this month, and we’re still doing 10k OCIs on Castrol synthetic. It doesn’t leak. It runs smoothly. she will drive it 1000 miles this week, out of state. No worries.
