Reliable Daily Driver — We bought this car 2 years a go, just because the price was to good to pass up. I am driving it daily to work, it seems very sluggish on start up,and runs a little rough. It only has 136,000 miles on it.

Pros: solid car great top end power

Cons: sluggish starts

87 740 Turbo Gle — I don't like the fact that there is not room in the engine compartment to fix it. It's always breaking down on me and I never have the time or money to keep fixing it. A couple things I like about it are, its got some get up and go and its pretty comfortable.

Pros: It's fast, and comfortable

Cons: It's hard to find parts and there so expensive to fix

Great Station Wagon Anytime But Winter. — This car and the Volvo wagon that replaced it were great except when there was snow around. Which really surprised me since it was designed in Sweden where there's a lot of snow (even around the coast.) Everything was well thought out and placed exactly where you would expect them on a dashboard. Got rid of this on for a newer model.

Pros: Easy to drive, well thought out interior, decent mileage.

Cons: Winter driving was poor without several hundred pounds of sand tubes in the back.
