they don't feel as solid as they used to feel. I had a '68 144S and a '94 940 Turbo. They were both like rocks. About 18 months ago, I test drove the S60, S80, and V70. They just didn't have that same old Volvo feel.

If you don't like it your not alone but ego toy? It cost 36-42K. It's about the safest ego toy out there by the way. It has more airbags then all the cars in your neighborhood. So getting in an accident must be like being squeezed by a big pillow LOL!
Beer....... the wonder drug.MR_GRUMPY

Prozac is for those Volvo luvin' yuppies.
Just how many air bags does this wonder car have? Does it have side bags for the rear passengers??
Ps. Is it as safe as an M1A1?
Pss. I've don't have anything against people spending their money on expensive toys, as long as they realize that they are TOYS.

well, it is important to have a safe car when you drive next to urban assault vehicles. Plus, a chance of dying in a car accident is much higher than on the bike as far as I know.

Not bad for a Ford ...HouseMoney

The newer Volvos may not last forever like the older ones (I've had both), but they certainly look nicer.
looks like a mid-90s Accordgtx

The new Volvos are a nightmare--lots of electrical gremlins and they depreciate like mad. Plus I don't like FWD. I'll drive the wheels off my 240 and then look into Subarus.
