Never Again — Probably the worst car I have ever owned or driven! Handling was awful, it just wallowed around like a hippo. The only positives were, heated front seats and it felt safe as it was built like a tank. Expensive to maintain, looks horrible - avoid at all costs!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: You don't see these on the road any longer for good reason

Cons: nothing good to say about this I'm afraid

Great 1st Car! — Erm... Maybe not to everybodies taste! Terrible CVT gearbox, manual everything, however it is a Volvo and therefore build quality and safety are reasonably good, 1.4 engine sssslllllooooowwwwwww but robust.

Pros: At the time, a great 1st car, cheap insurance and cheap to maintain.

Cons: Hmmm...

Solid And Reliable By Robin

I have a soft spot for this car, probably because it was the first I bought. Not alot to rave about, but it got me from a to b for a few years without much fuss. Read More
