I chose a Volvo because it's a luxury vehicle, but it's just fair. I haven't had any mechanical problems so it has been nice that way. The fuel pump is going out, so it will need to be replaced soon though. It is very costly to maintain or repair though. It requires a higher grade of gas, and synthetic oil, and a special oil filter size, most cars have one size, but not this one. It doesn't get as good of mileage as I was hoping, on the road it only gets about 28, in town it gets 25. There is a lot of road noise, but can be drowned out with the stereo. I wouldn't recommend this car to financial struggling people, but if you have extra dough, go for it.
Turbo and looks
Use parts that are cheaper to replace, for example the oil filter.
