Volvos, like BMWs, and Mercedes, are expensive to fix and maintain. I'd suggest something like a Ford Escort, Chevy Blazer or S-10 Pick Up. These vehicles are very reliable, long lasting, and cheap to fix when something does go wrong. HTH. -Jim

12 yr. old turbo anything w/200k, no. plain jane honda or toyota would be a smarter choice.
