Simply put this vehicle is up to the task. I purchased it in 2000 and performed zero maintenance until it was paid for. (4 years). Currently, I replaced almost everything except body parts. That being said this vehicle has over 3 hundred thousand miles and is unbelievably quick. I have run up with 09 Mercedes "C" class of course with ease. So if you can perform your own maintenance that's a plus since most people are absent to how to work on Volvos and you will lose your shirt if you don't have repair skills. Happy driving.
Quick, responsive and with IPD swaybars can handle with the best cars on the market
Bulbs are a pain and the general squeak from old age. But going on 10 years is not bad
