Good For Gettin Your Swerve On — well its really old, but no rust. manual moonroof, heated leather seats, automaitc windows. rear-wheel drive. my tires suck atm. the roof doesnt have fabric on the interior so it looks really creepy. also, the padding can come off real easy and it gets in your eyes. its a bit of a gas hog so I try not to drive that often. overall for $1700 its great though.

Pros: heated leather seats
manual moonroof
automatic windows
flawless european design
chick magnet
very reliable

Cons: gas mileage
roof of the interior
slow acceleration
old
janky
radio works but its complicated

My First Car — I loved this car! It was my first, and if it hadn't died, I would still be driving it. Volvo Station Wagons are awesome!

Pros: Turbo, Sunroof, Leather, Power Everything

Cons: Stalled in the middle of intersections, no AC
