JAMESBROWN,I just purchased a Volvo s80 2.9 for all the reasons you articulated.I own a oil analysis and auto racing business and have seen all the quirks of each auto company.I hope that this is a car I can drive for many trouble free years.AAPILOT

In the mid 1970's I had a Volvo 164E. It was a great car until it needed parts. It was in the shop two weeks, waiting for a new ignition switch. Parts availability has probably improved, but I think it is a major concern if you are keeping a car for a long time.
