Better spec' than 520i and E200 for the new price.
Dealers not the cheapest, but are knowledgable and quick.
On the road
Good grip and composure, even under adverse conditions and on poor road surface.
Two litre 20-valve unit needs revs to do its best work and feels only adequate for the wehight of the car.
Living with it
Excellent, except for the clutch pedal falling off! Volvo reported only a handfull of similar incidents worldwide.
Looks old now, but still professional and polished.
Fully adjustable seats and reach / rake adjustment make for a very versatile car.
Security and Service
Never been attacked, but vulnerable with no alarm or immobiliser.
Good backup from the dealers.
Problems and Ownership
Clutch peddle literally came adrift and ultimately fell off whilst I was driving!
Did you buy the car new?
Would you buy the same model again?
Did you buy from the same manufacturer again?
