2012 Volvo C30J. G. - Charlottesville, VA09/23/2016
Before we had made the first payment on this vehicle, a crack developed in
the coolant expansion tank resulting in catastrophic engine overheating and failure. The engine was toast. We were presented with a $16,000 repair bill.
We were told that even if we had purchased the Carmax extended warranty, the problem we experienced would not have been covered. Lovely.
Forturnately, after a month of deliberations, Carmax bought the car back from us , and in doing so, made us whole. What a relief. Go Carmax. They will undoubtedly sell the car off for parts, and write the rest of it off on their insurance.
First Volvo, loving the decision to buy!

This car has great handling, has pretty good gas mileage (between 26 - 30 mpg) and is a real pleasure to drive. I have a 6-speed manual transmission that has plenty of pep and power. The rear seats fold down flat so you can put larger items in the car, though it looks small upon initial inspection. I would not recommend this car if you have small children, because it is a 2-door, and getting car seats, children,, etc., in and out would be painful. It is a solid performer, and I am really glad I bought it!
Lots of Power, Lots of Space
