Pros: "Comfort and quality"

Cons: "None!"

"What I love most about this car is its quality and comfort. I've taken it on road trips and I don't experience the back aches that I do with SUVs and other cars that I've driven. You can also save 3 different customizations for seat height, length, recline, and lumbar support. The sound quality is excellent, even better than the new cars that are out today. The steel frame lives up to Volvo's safety reputation and it doesn't take too much toll on the gas mileage. It's definitely a car with character and one that you won't mistake for any other!"

"For a 20 year old car, it keeps on keeping on. It has a lot of wear and tear but the maintenance has been very reasonable. The outside visability is great. This car takes me 500 miles each week during ski season. Good on the snow. Love the car."

"Purchased used in February 2000; plan to drive it forever. Seats five adults, fold down rear seats, backseat center opening to trunk is handy for skis or similar items inside car, fold down child seat in center back. Looks great, rides great, low maintenance. Love the suede seats, love the oxymoronic spoiler on a 4D sedan Volvo, love the car!"

Pros: "Durable as all get out."

Cons: "Weighs 2 tons"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"I've owned this car for almost 2 years now, and it is the single most amazing car I've ever driven. These things are tanks. They go FOREVER!! Guy I bought it from had never had the timing system changed. It had 186k miles on it, still running like brand new. If you buy this car for less than 3k from anyone, you're getting a steal!"

Pros: "Handles beautifully; sleeps a 130-lb. wolf and me"

Cons: "Rats like it, too--to chew on! Needs 89-octane."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"My dear Volvo--I've slept in it, had meals in it, stayed warm in it (heated seats), carried Pulitzer Prize winners in it, waited for ferries in it, lived with a big wolf dog in it--I love this car. But now the wiring harness has been munched on by rodents and it will probably be deemed a total loss. Sob! Where will I find another Volvo as good as this one?"
