"I paid less than $3,000 for this used car 4 years ago. It has been by far the best used car I've ever bought! It now has 300,000 miles on it and is still running strong. I would buy another one in a heartbeat."

"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!"
