It's not cool, but it's certainly utilitarian.

2004 Volvo V70 2.4 Fwd 4dr Wagon (2.4L 5cyl 5M)
This is a fantastic all-around vehicle. It's big and comfy enough for a normal person, can haul whatever you need, can tow as much as a small truck (3300lbs), gets 30mpg on the highway (25mpg mixed), and is fun to drive (5 speed manual transmission.) I'm a Volvo enthusiast, so my opinion is slightly biased. I got this wagon for a really good deal because it needed some body work. I … performed the necessary repairs and have put ~67,000 miles on it in a little over 4 years. Parts are relatively inexpensive if you shop online. Places like FCPEuro and EEuroParts have mostly everything in stock and have fair pricing. RockAuto has a lot of stuff, too. There are several dedicated Volvo forums that cover just about every repair possible. I will continue to drive it and upkeep it until the wheels fall off. It's a very useful, all around good vehicle. November 4th, 2020 - the car now has 230k miles on it and is still going strong. It’s still the best vehicle that I’ve ever owned. May 6th, 2021 - the old Volvo has survived the pandemic thus far (with 233k miles and counting!)
