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.
