Volvo drivers usually suck so if you're good driver I would look at another brand... Maybe they just make people become bad drivers

ouch

get ready for the $$$$ maintenence costs! $1,000 oil changes seem to be the freakin norm with my daughtrs S40. cant keep brakes and rotors on the damned thing either. That is why I got rid of my S70, too damned much money to keep it on the road
