After my wife got a new car, after much deliberation, I decided to sell my 5-series BMW and take her hand-me-down 2000 Volvo wagon.
At the time, the decision was driven a practical one - less expensive to own and maintain, more room for a family of 4 and performance in the snow.
2 years later, I couldn't be happier with the decision.
It has been reliable and everything I need in a vehicle with the exception of looking cool.
Fortunately, I'm way past worrying about looking cool.

Volvo has offered many generations of mid-sized station wagons. Only Subaru has been able to challenge the great value offered by the Swedish marque.
The 2000 Volvo V70 wagon was the last year for the P80 chassis and it came with a great 5-cylinder engine in either normally aspirated or turbo format.
The SE model was very popular and continues to satisfy many families as it ages gracefully compared with its competition.

2000 V70 Wagon.
The Volvo safety features are its trademark.
I never felt uneasy about my family being on the road with any Volvo we've owned.
Our non-turbo is no hot-rod, so that reduces some of the parental "worry factor".
Besides regular maintenance,
most repairs are what one might expect - tie rod ends, brakes, the odd sensor.
There's been a surprise or two, but few.
Our mechanic says, "These things go forever".
It runs like a top.
No leaks, no oil burning.
Just a solid car, with nice appointments.
The build quality is great. 12 salty Michigan winters and no rust, at all.
It's no four-wheel drive, but it gets through Michigan winters, just fine.
