i am on the road 5 to 6 days per week and have had these predictable vehicles since the early 80's. what i am sure of from exposure, is that if i ever get into an acident, i will walk away and live to talk about it.
these cars are very predictable and reliable, and no they are NOT expensive to maintain or repair. but please do yourself a huge favor and search out a repair facility/dealer who does know these cars and or LIKES to work on them. i have found this to the best advice i have ever been given in my many years behind the wheel. don,t ever be apprehensive about these cars, just find the one you like get your best price and drive it! you'll never where it out, this is my 2nd HIGH mileage volvo
Great car, fits all of our stuff, two
large dogs and now a baby. Purchased
our 92 in 96, with VIP warranty package
extra $1,800 (3yr/36K)& worth every
penny - things go on this car and it is
expensive to fix. Don't get sucked in
by the dealer for repairs, you just
need a good mechanic. Now has 120K+ and
should go for 250K+, remember the oil
changes, very important. Just put in a
new a/c system $850 - talk about cold
air, it's great! Having an 11 yr old
car things are bound to go, but this
thing still works!
My 740 Turbo has 197,000+ plus miles on
it but is still a great machine. Great
acceleration. This thing leaves newer
and sportier looking cars in the dust.
It did 0-60 in 7.8 according to road
tests of the day. Not bad. The handling
is also nice. Quick to respond, great
turning radius, and overall fun to
drive. A little too much body lean
perhaps but still good. Very comfy car
on long trips and you can fit a ton of
stuff in the back. Fuel economy and
noise are concerns.
