"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!"

"So far the best car I've ever owned. It is a 1996 850 turbo wagon Platinum edition."

"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."

"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?"

Pros: "Reliability, comfort, sexy sedan."

Cons: "Price of replacement parts."

"Actually, all 6 Volvo's I've had were the stuff (yes, even the 1964 122S)!! I bought it used from a guy that maintained it well. I've put 60,000 miles on it, freeway, town, and even off-road a bit. I wouldn't hesitate to drive it cross country on any given day, rain, snow, what ever. It will easily go 300,000 miles and then I'll think about getting an XC90. The only thing that makes me nervous is the lack of service you need to do on the automatic transmission. The parts are pricey at the dealer, but if you're a mechanic shop on-line and save a lot of money."
