Simply - Volvo — The acceleration is a bit slow, but of course it's a 2+ ton car so you can't expect more from a 2.5D engine. Breaking and handling on the other can are just magnificent. It doen't need any repairs so far and anything is awesome

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It's a Volvo, you don't need more reasons

Cons: None

Very Good First Car — Very good car, nice acceleration and handling. the turn radius is not great but not terrible. looks pretty good, especially for a ten year old car. few repairs needed. mileage could be much much better but i get about 22 mpg on average.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: solid car, very reliable, nice acceleration and handling

Cons: mpg could be better

Lived In The Shop — This car was a beautiful tragedy... it drove well, looked even better, and was kept up front by most valets. The problems started at 50,000 miles when the warrantee ran out. I replaced 4 different computers, both turbo seals, had numerous oil leaks... the list goes on. After $10,000 in repairs over a 2-year time period I fell asleep and totalled it out. Most of my friends think my subconcious was trying to save me more money in the long run because as much as I hated repairing this car, I actually liked it when everything was running perfectly and had difficulty parting with it. It was like being unable to dump the crappy girlfiend who is bleeding you dry and screwing you over because she's hot and fun to be around.

Pros: Looks, mileage, acceleration, comfort

Cons: reliability

It's Pretty Good — Love how my car handles but it's just too expensive to maintain. Parts are way too expensive but the feel and comfort inside is really nice. I can sleep in it all day.

Pros: great performance. nice handling. comfortable

Cons: parts are expensive

204 Bhp - 235 Km/h Topspeed! — A fin Volvo, but it disagrees with me on some points: It don't like to be driven like a i.e. Fiat with a small engine. It likes to cuise along at high speed. But the best thing is, that it almost CAN'T be driven off the road, if you push it hard, it just stays in line, but the rollbar could be harder, a little bit of body-roll.

Pros: 2,9 l. You feel like king of the road, and a night with the big headlights on you scare people of the road (on the danish motorway anyway...)

Cons: It tells me "do you really wanna get there in a hurry" before it starts to take-off - a Swedish thing I guess.
