This is my first car but not the only
one I drive on a regular basis. The
turning circle is awesome and the car
starts every time. Engine is okay once
the turbo spools, but fairly weak before
that. Interior is comfortable but needs
cup holders. While the car isn't what
one might refer to as beautfiul, it
doesn't look bad and keeps you from
Handling is decent with a bit more body
roll than I'd like, but it's 13 years
old already. Understeer is controllable
and the limited slip rear diff is really
useful. Few mechanical issues even with

This was (and is) our first Volvo
purchase. we bought it used at 60,000
miles. Were worried about turbo going
out at 120K, etc. We are now at
169,000 miles with almost NO problems.
(the power antenna broke and the brakes
need frequent replacing because of
weight of car). But otherwise,
incredibly reliable, comfortable. We
are due for an upgrade but just can't
seem to say goodbye to such a great car.

We bought this car new and it has been
excellent. Plenty of room for 5 adults
for long trips. Handling is typical
Volvo which means the car will go where
you point it and stop when needed.
We have used Mobil 1 since new, so the
turbo should last. Present mileage is
115K. I do much of the work and oil
changes are the easiest of any car I
have ever owned. Volvo 4s are easily
Interesting replacements and repairs:
Sunroof stuck open ($68 at the dealer)
Power stering pump
Rotors lasted about 100K.
Recommend switching to 225/50/16 tires.
They are cheaper than what comes on the
car and give a better contact patch.

This is a well-built car. Providing
great comfort, excellent reliability,
and legendary safety, what Volvo are
known for. I'm very impressed with
the roominess and driver's visibility
of the road inside the Volvo. Its
turning circle is extremely small.
The car is running at 190,000 miles
with absolutely no sign of any
mechanical problems. And my wife
admitted that it has a smoother ride
than her 1999 Camry at 40,000 miles
