Purchased brand new. Appreciate the safety aspect. Incredible steering radius. Front brakes need replacement often. Engine light comes on frequently. Nice auto for long highway drives. Somewhat sporty feel with handling. Large, open storage area when back seats are down. For a car with almost 205K miles, it still handles quite well.

Very solid, reliable, comfortable, sporty without roughness. Great engine and drivetrain, exceptional handling. May appear dated (boxy) but drives better than the vast majority of new cars. Cheap alternative, including maintenance, to Mercedes or BMW. Never stranded and only minor problems if maintained properly. Holds almost as much cargo as my SUV. Lastly, safe as houses, and generally fun to drive. Tight turning radius makes it ideal in traffic and for parking.

I have been driving my 1998 V90 for 9 years and I still love it like the first day I bought it. Super comfortable front seats, rear seats fold down for mega yard sale purchases (got an entire patio set in there) or all seats up (w/3rd row) and you can seat 7! Stay on top of maintenance - tranny flush, timing belt, etc. and she just keeps going and going.
