Nothing there to cause concern?Is a used Volvo XC40 estate reliable?
In the most recent What Car? Reliability Survey, the XC40 came an admirable second in the family SUV category, with only 11% of any of them having a fault, and these mostly minor, split between bodywork, fuel system and sat-nav. Half were back on the road on the same day, and no owners were charged for the work.
Meanwhile, Volvo as a manufacturer ranked 11th in the same survey out of 31 brands. That's a much better result than the 20th-place finish in the previous survey.

I attach a screen shot of the consumer magazine Which? report which shows Volvo reliability to be poor
Exactly! Here are my hopes:Basically we early adopters.... You knew that on purchase.... They maybe problem but I can't imagine anything major.
and now it seems Tesla model S and Y have been dropped from being recommended buys due to reliability.In that rating chart, the Volvo ratings are no different than Mercedes ratings, so I do not expect surprises. It is always a risk to take on a first generation car. Look at all the teething problems Tesla has had to work out. They have been around 10 years and their latest generation cars, the 3's, have dubious build quality. The EV market is hardly risk-free at this early stage.
