volvo motors will last you forever if you treat it right, even the newer ones will last you longer than most makes.

It is a great engine as long as it is properly cared for. I had a 1993 volvo 850 GLT with the I5 and it ran great even with 260,000 miles. Just beware of the S80s they had tons of electrical problems.

Also I currently have a 2001 S60 with about 200,000 miles and the 2.4 I5 runs like new.

I have a 2001 S60 T5. Its a high pressure turbo I5. It has 191,000 miles on it. 0-60 time is much better than what Volvo said it was brand new. So yes. It is a very dependable engine. Volvos are Tanks!!!!

The I5 motor is a great motor that will run forever as long as you take care of it. I've got a 95 850 thats got 250,xxx miles on it and it still runs great. Just basic care will go a long way, I know a few people who have opted to go for a rebuild at 300k just as a precautionary as after that long you have put a bit of wear and tear on the engine. But keep in mind it's not necesarry.
