"I bought this car used for $5K, it had 80K on the odometer, I drove it for 150K and it is still going strong, only replaced the catalytic converter and the radiator, otherwise no issues whatsoever, besides a few minor cosmetic issues, like replace the electrical switch on the driver side power window. I highly recommend this car, it is one of the best Volvos ever made, in my opinion and the opinion of the Volvo mechanic I know in Berkeley (great place, called The Model Garage). I've also met two other people at that shop who have over 300K on this same model, and both of them reported no major trouble. Great engine, great transmission (unlike some of the newer models after 2002, I think I was told, that have transmission issues)"

My favorite car!

"I bought this car used in 2002. It has been so reliable. I am only giving it up because my dear niece has a 2 year old and I know this will be a great, safe family car for her. I have done every 5,000 service. Taken it to Foreign Carriage in Thousand Oaks for all since 2002 and has been so happy with this car. Molly"

Pros: "Safe, reliable, stiff ride reduces car sickness"

Cons: "Expensive to repair"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 7

"Overall this has been a very great car for us with two little boys, a dog and lots of travel. In fact we are only replacing it because it has not been great in snow and the kids like skiing. This model has had a compression issue that has been replaced and odds are will need to be replaced again. It is still driving strong though. Volvos are workhorses although repairs are pricey."
