Volvo / c70 engineering design failure on the turbo

1 IL, United States Review updated:

Be aware the the design of the reliable 5 cylinder engine becomes unreliable when volvo added the turbo to it. They recommend 7500 mile oil changes but the turbo will fail and your engine will develop sludge and possibly fail shortly after you repair the turbo. You need to change the oil every 3000 miles. Forget the lies they will tell you. Do not get the t 2.5 urboor you will find out for yourself.

    My 1 year old brand new car driven for 40.000 km had a problem in the engine. I will never buy or recommend Volvo again. Volvo doesn't stand behind of its product. I was expecting to get same customer service as German brands have.
