This wagon is still tight after 80k miles, trips through snowbound Sierras and summer deserts. A new set of scorpion tires at 50K (a perfectly matched tire for this car, BTW) is the only repair or replacement required so far. Very unassuming at stoplights, this car is low on the police radar, but punch the accelerator and see what happens when the turbo kicks in...
Super Power and Performance. 25 miles per gallon no matter how I drive - very respectable for this large wagon. The disappearing dashboard cupholder is very convenient as are the stereo controls on the steering wheel. Dark tinted windows added for a meaner look.
Volvo should bring back the disappearing dashboard cup holder - 2002 appears to be the last year it was offered?
