Model and miles?
Don't all liberals own a Volvo and a pair of Birkenstock's at one point or another in their lives?
Ha. That was fast. You probably drive a leased Subaru.
I need a truck where I live....
Well, i ain't no bunny kissing lib, and both me and the missus have used Volvos. Hers has 300k+, mine, 160k. Great fucking cars, and mine will handle less than ideal conditions.
Fuck that Detroit garbage!
2011 C70 with 29K miles on it. Yeah, I own a Volvo, can you believe it?
It was one of the few hard top/convertibles on the market that I actually liked the looks.
I like retro vehicles.
I want this.
Does the front end bounce?
Had two Volvos over the years.
At the time they were far better than the rust-bait being built in America.
Even at that, the first one was underpowered but otherwise gave good service over about three years and 60,000 miles - a Model 142 door sedan. Traded it up to newer model with a somewhat more powerfu lB20b engine to pull a small utility trailer.
Couldn't keep spark plugs in it. 4,000 miles and fouled. Tried regular, hi-test, low-lead, no lead - all the same. Consulted with three different dealers service departments and techs at Volvo "zone" offices. No solutions. Finally sold it off after 2-years with about 40,000 miles. Got a used Ford Futura with a 289 V8 - Powerful, damn good looking, and engine was going strong at 140,000 plus miles when my needs changed. I miss that Ford like a really nice old girlfriend. I miss that last Volvo like I'd miss a case of piles.
