I own 2 Volvo XC's.
Both with 165,000 mi. I've owned them for 6 years and I think they are one of the best cars Volvo built, aside from the 240 series.
A lot of people don't like them because they are expensive to keep and I agree with this if you have someone else do the work.
I do most of the work on my cars; I'm not a mechanic but the internet can tell you how to do anything. I'll tackle anything as long as I have the time (even a head rebuild on one of them) If you're looking for a maintenance free car, this isn't it.
If you're a shad tree mechanic this is a great car.
