Very good value to spec ratio.
Parts can be expensive, but are not needed often.
On the road
Excellent drive. Small car handling in a large car. Ride a bit hard at slow speeds.
Suprising for size of car, more than adequate and a nice note from the engine to boot!
Living with it
Very reliable as you would expect from Volvo.
Become more popular due to low prices. Still holds its own on the high street, dispite its age.
More than comfortable and all the toys help.
Security and Service
Petty theives just don't bother, provided you keep valuables out of sight.
Had bad experience with LEX, but moved to a MILL and no problems.
Problems and Ownership
One tappet required changing, but done under warranty.
Still very reliable due to good maintenance.
Did you buy the car new?
Would you buy the same model again?
Did you buy from the same manufacturer again?
