Was Overall A Good & Safe Car With 2 Babies — Hated it being hard to find mechanics that I could afford with being a single mom with 2 babies Plus finding parts that I could afford was always hard Usually good and very comfortable with working and carrying 2 babies

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Had plenty room inside & in trunk with having 2 babies

Cons: Hard to find parts or mechanics that are inexpensive with it being a volvo

Love It With A Passion. — Love the way it looks , ride, handle and feel. If your not into the most flashy car , but one that has longevity and quality ,i 'd recommend this car not , mine a car like mine. European cars are the best overall.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: very pleasing to drive, handles corners very well.

Cons: Electrical issues.

Not Bad For What I Paid — Faster than my other car, has a nice exhaust tone, leather interior was nice. FWD burnouts got some interesting reactions from both passengers and bystanders haha. It was a pretty fun car to drive for a 400$ car. Never again will i buy the first year of a new model though.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: fun, fast, sunroof

Cons: first model year, hard to find parts

850, An Ok First Car — Its a 850, a big one... Its nice to drive, but the preformance are not as good as i want it, but its hard to do anything about it since it is a GLE. It drinks about 10l/100km and i think its ok for a car of this size and age.

Pros: Its quite and nice to drive

Cons: realy bad preformance

Safe, Handles Loads Better Than You Might Think, And It Looks Like I Need An Aarp Card To Run It. — This is the first new Volvo with the new FWD, the new 168-bhp I-5 and the new class of Volvo ( intended to go against the Merc C-class and the BMW E36). I'm the second owner and one of the lucky 13% of owners who's got one with a manual gearbox and those sweet taillights.

Pros: Safety, handling, space, reliability, noise, brakes

Cons: Still 3300 lbs, slow, colour.

Funky/fun Volvo Needs Some Tlc By philipjfry27
