All in all not a bad vehicle. I
personally believe that this car is the
epitome of what a Volvo really is.
Simple, safe and effective at it's
duties, it does nothing to stand out in
one personal area. It does cost a
pretty penny to service, and burns
through tires quickly... but the
tradeoffs in safety and comfort are
Good gas milage at the expense of
power, very high feeling of safety,
decent stock sound system and
relatively few problems.
OEM gaskets and seals are terrible, if
buying used, check for oil leaks around
gaskets. Low power and has an appetite
for tires. Light bulbs also burn out
