Bought for £4,000 four years ago - car had been off road of 6 years.
Only the alternator packed up one day.
On the road
Stunningly quick - excellent acceleration at all speeds.
A thrill to drive.
Living with it
Maybe a bit tired but hey, who cares when you out pace almost anything on the road!
Good, roomy too.
Security and Service
Easily burgled so get an immobiliser. Thief opened front drivers door with a screwdriver.
I don't use Volvo as they are very expensive. Find a local mechanic who knows what he is doing.
Problems and Ownership
Only the alternator packed up one day. The battery was about to explode and all lights blew out. Luckily I avoided a fire by stopping!
Did you buy the car new?
Would you buy the same model again?
Did you buy from the same manufacturer again?
