Awesomeness In A Box — I love this car. I have had so many memories in it. Throwing crackers out the window on the way to the pool is the most vivid. It keeps running, past 100,000, past 200,000 and hopefully much longer. it is worth approx $84, so we won't be selling it any time soon.

Pros: It will never break, ever

Cons: it does 0-60 in literally 15 seconds

We Call It "the Volvo-meister" — Used to have lots of cool features, like radio, speedometer, odometer, AC, and cruise, but now that stuff doesn't work anymore. However, the engine is running and the transmission still shifts smoothly, which seems like a miracle.

Pros: heavy as a tank, drivetrain lasts forever, heated seats still work

Cons: everything else electrical doesn't work

First Car — This was the first car I drove in high school. I have many fond memories of this car - smashing into parking lot walls to take advantage of the unpainted rubber bumpers, having to pound the radio because it wouldn't pick up radio stations otherwise, flooring the pedal and waiting about 3 seconds before it would decide to accelerate in a meek manner. I drove it until the odometer hit 185,xxx. Solid car!

Pros: Safety (slow = safe), incredibly reliable (never had any maintenance issues), seat warmers

Cons: I could never get rid of the orange smell on the inside (one too many road trips where passengers decided to snack on oranges).  To this day, I can't stand eating or smelling oranges in a car.

Sweeet — Did not get the pleasure of driving for to long due to the fact I was not car savvy. I had my brother-in-law drive it and he thinks that it is a very comfortable, solid and well built car. Very low maintenance if you keep up with services and a car that will last you a lift time. Have 4 of them in family so know of the pleasure they bring.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Very nice looking car inside and out. Interior seats and carpeting look like they are fresh from the showroom floor.

Cons: Unless you are familiar with Volvos you will have to take to the dealership to get work on.

This is a true classic. A model of thoughtful and thorough design and execution. And remarkably driveable, 28 years after it ceased its long production run. Read More
