"I bought mine used. It had all service records of repairs and general maintance that showed me that it had been taken care of by the original owner. I have done maintance, tires, battery amd brakes in the last 5 years with no other problems. I could not be happier with any other car and I feel safe in it since it is built so solid."

"This is a total turn around from the usual vehicle that I get. I have been pleased with this car in every way possible. I have become a volvo fan and would definitely purchase another. The drive is smooth, the radio beats nicely and the engine is very reliable with no super big problems. I bought this car with 135,000 miles and have had no problems whatsoever. My only complaints are the moonroof. I don't know what happened but it is off track or the track got warped during the winter and it will not close flush with the roof anymore. But that is a very minor detail because it does not leak when it rains. And the cup holders, I guess Germans or those that drove this car in 1997 did not drink much in their cars but the cup holders are all but useless for holding most drinks. The trunk is huge and spacious and fits all my needs. I took this car on a trip that totaled 600 miles both ways and it went smoothly and that was before I had it serviced. Overall this car as been a pleasure to drive and I will be sad to get rid of it, but I am glad I had a chance to drive it."

Front as good as rear (camera broke)

"All work and upgrades done locally at Volvo specialists. I have all receipts for $3500 in repairs and upgrades. My car has the classic Volvo look which is a beautiful car with timeless beauty. The power plant is plenty for the vehicle with three driving modes in rear wheel drive. The engine has 24 valves, twin overhead cams and gives a good burst of power when entering highways. No dents, no rust, great leather. New timing chain, cold a/c, power roof. This car is very safe and good for a new driver who you worry about. Virgin steel and Volvos' safety records speak for themselves."
