    My Fourth Car — Volvo invented the safety belt hundred years ago and this is my first Volvo (that sentence didn't make sense). Keept it for a few months, driven mostly by my cousin "again". Its all family love and if you do love your family, buy a Volvo St Wagon. It is safe with it's swedish built steel and comfortable for longer roads. Mine wasnt that fast, but you cant get the "R" version with the singel turbo. Get a full exhaust, chip, air intake and bigger turbo on that thing, and you're looking at over 300 hp with a touch of nice torque.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Swedish

    Cons: no turbo

    This Aint Granny's Volvo... — Best thing about my R is that it looks different than any other Volvo on the road. It is powerful with great handling, easily modifiable, its a great daily driver while still being totally unique. Plus, it looks evil and treacherous. Muahaha!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: This isnt your average Volvo.

    Cons: Old enough that I have to search for aftermarket parts.

    V70 2.5 Turbo All Wheel Drive — Economy is waste of time - I can get better from the Lambo, blows most cars away at traffic lights, excellent load space, can tow an elephant with it, four wheel drive just takes you anywhere, comfortable, handles well, good fun when you want fun and normal when you need it to be.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: performance

    Cons: mpg

    Absolutely Superb — Built like a tank with loads of room, doesn't know how to break down which is great and is more comfortable than an arm chair. Not too heavy on fuel and although not as quick as a T5 still pretty good.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Its a Volvo

    Cons: Your a weaklin

    98 V70xc — This is the car I would want most, and I am lucky to drive it. The turbo is great, it's fun to drive, and the AWD means I can go anywhere I want. I love my car so much! This is the first year for the v70xc, so repairs are many and expensive, but I think it's worth it to drive such a beautiful machine!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: It's a beast.

    Cons: It's expensive to maintain!

    I Love This Car, And I Want To Have Another — My perfect car. 250hp, 0-60 6 sec, i had it for a year and fell in love with it. I made the finish and the quality shine like it was when it was new. I bought 2 new sets of rims, new steeringwheel, completely modernized the front, refurnished the interior, new blue backlight in the dashboard, wing on the back, gave it a paintrefreshment, repainted the hood, new exhaust with rececat and alot more details. It was perfect but I couldn't afford it alone.

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

    Pros: This Volvo has the best standard seats in the carworld. Drives like a dream, excellent grip and a fabulous engine.

    Cons: NONE

    Awesome — The performance of my Volvo was amazing for a station wagon that thing had to go from 0 to 60 in 6 seconds! the build quality was, it was the safest car in the world, you could drive it into a tree and it would still work later. the exterior was ugly while the interior was plush and beautiful. the car is the best car to drive it has the space of a big car and the speed of a sports car.

    Pros: everything

    Cons: nothing

    My V70. — Performance not great but the 5 cylinder engine sounds fantastic. Loads of room, easily swallows family of 5 with room to spare. Very reasonable running costs for a big car averaging 28mpg. Most comfy car i've ever owned but still handles well enough to give a fun drive.

    Pros: Size, sound, space, handling, comfort..........

    Cons: None that I can see.
