Circa 2004 to be exact, any wrenches out there who have experience? I need one for my god that is coming in mid april. He will be with me everyday , and the little low milage grocery getter is going to be too small.

I had a 2000 5 speed turbo. Good car. A little pricier than I expected when the waterpump and alternator went, but that's European for you. If I was looking for something like that, I'd lean more towards a Subie. Slightly smaller, but no brainer on costs and reliability.

Yup, what Mr. Blues said. Good cars, fairly reliable but typically European (read: more expensive than Asian or domestics) for repair costs.

The wife has an '04 S60 Turbo - similar platform as the 70 as I recall. It now resides at our house in skiland so doesn't see as many miles but it's still around and going strong.

Depending on the garages near you, many garages will not work on Volvos.
