bought my '05 wagon new, replacing a '95 volvo 960. the volvo was my dream car become rude awakening, so i wanted an affordable, reliable car. i got one.
i keep the mobile one fresh,
am careful with the transmission, complete stops before shifting, etc. when i change the trans fluid, the old looks as clean as the new.
84,000 problem free miles so far. smooth ride, quiet cabin, ice cold air, wonderful stereo,
cheap to insure, and invisible to cops. she is garage kept, and i always park her at the far edge of a lot, so she looks new. last oil change, my mechanic offered to buy the car. i'll drive her 'til she drops, then i'm buying a ford flex
