Are turbo failures common with this model Volvo?
Not really, more issues with electrical systems. As long as the car was treated well, and you have extra money to maintain it, go for it.
I haven't heard of many, if any, turbo failures with these Volvos. They utilize Mitsubishi turbochargers, which are very durable and long-lasting.
