I have the Volvo D6-370Hp for 2 years now without any problems whatsoever. Direct electronic controls are fine, if anything maybe too direct ?
The EVC systems works well although I have a big query on the accuracy of their fuelsender and the data derived from this sensor. That is about the only issue I have with it.
