Well I don't own a Volvo, and probably never will. I work on cars a lot and a friend of mine loved them. Of course I was recruited to work on his Volvo a time or two. The unibody construction and material thickness' used seems to be a lot better (stronger) than American counterparts, which is why they (Volvo) claim to have the safest cars. Other than that, the mechanical components seemed to be inline with nearly every other car.

Volvo 850 owner walks in to gas station attendant and says "I want a new windscreen wiper for my Volvo 850."

Gas station attendant looks out at car and says "OK, that's a fair swap."



Nothing like a good extension of the Lada-Skoda humor franchise.

I have an Aero, have put nearly 200, 000 miles on it, still get 26 MPG +, and it's still a pisser to drive. Plus, Saab has beaten Volvo for the crown in Sweden when it comes to crash test ratings.

Will have to post up some pics, and maybe some mpegs, of a friends Volvo when I get home *pics etc on my home 'puter*. Its an older 740 Turbo I think...and he drag races it!

Its actually not a bad hauler for its age and type...and has dispatched more than its fair share of competition in its class on the dragstrip.

One of the last dragmeets he attended, the race announcer could be heard jokingly: "In Lane 2 is Mike and his Volvo. Modifications are a sunroof, leather seats, air conditioning and a CD Player"

Volvos are fine, but there is only one car for me ...



A Jaguar XJ220
