I bought the car as a workhorse to save my Renault Clio 182 from racking up the miles. I've since sold the Clio and have yet to replace it with something interesting. The Volvo however, is a worthy car for carrying out day-to-day motoring duties, with a good turn of speed and offers reliable, dependable service!

Have only had one small problem with suspension joint wear which is pretty good for a 10 year old car! Service every 9 months at local non-franchise garage, very little expense apart from that, tyres last well.

The car is still new, but I expect excellent reliability, as I own another volvo (10 years old now ) and have had 9 volvos over the years. Still new, but going by my previous volvos, it's much better.

Good, reliable small estate and comfortable for short or long journeys. Particularly economical on longer journeys. Still looks pretty good for its age and mileage.
