I purchased the car from the original, private buyer at 70K; it now has 140K. It still burns no oil. It's been great. Replaced the silly rear hatch panel fastening system cheaply when it failed. (inexpensive kit.) One front wheel bearing whined until it was fixed for a couple of hundred bucks. Really, the perfect car if you like to haul stuff, and feel safe, comfortable and secure. Find a trusted mechanic to keep an eye on things (same for any car) and you'll grow very attached. The engine is excellent and sturdy. Quality, comfort and fun and you can fit your stuff in it.
Perfect seats, excellent driving position, good engine and sound system. It takes one down the road in comfort, with plenty of power and provides excellent sound.
Little stuff: the fastners for the tailgate panel, perhaps more robust materials for the front cup holders (both well-known minor issues in the Volvo forums).
