ReviewWhere do I start. I was in my 30's and my husband (an EE & Vette guy ) yawned at my boring choice. Fast forward 19+ yrs, he is just elated with Vixen at 325,000 miles, although she periodically needs some money thrown in, Our car doc said it was one of the best models made. Great engineering.
We are waiting for a good electric car to come out, and if Vixen should die, we'll buy an old Volvo. This car has been terrific. She boxy, boring, and nothing flashy, but her turning radius is amazing! We love our Vixen.
At 330,000 miles we drove Vixen to her resting place. Best car we have ever owned. We replaced Vixen, with Vinny, a Volvo S60. Volvo is like a religion.
Vinny got rear ended, and he took the hit well. The other car was totaled, whereas Vinny had $2,100 worth of damage. Like I said, it's a religion, based on great engineering and safety. This UPDATE is in AUG 2017 Still love my S60. Volvo is coming out with electric cars and hybrids. Can't wait to see their offers. I really like the brand.
