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.
