More information

This is currently my daily driver. I bought it in the summer of 2019 with 175,000 miles in Syracuse, New York from a guy who bought it just to drive it across the country from Portland, Oregon where it was a one owner car from new. It is fully rust free, and in very good shape for being a 25 year old car with now nearly 216,000 miles (as of this writing). It has been very practical, rides great. My only gripe would be the gas mileage (averages about 23-24 mpg). I have no real plans for it besides to continue driving it. In my ownership, I have replaced the CV axles and timing belt along with other routine maintenance.

    The Volvo must feel like home in Sweden when driving in snow :)

    Thanks for posting your ride.
