1974 Volvo 164 E 3.0 six cylinder
Much less refined than a Mercedes 280 from the period
The fuel injection system was a mystery to most service technicians at the time.
The Borg Warner 35 auto transmission was utterly mismatched to the engine. A turbo 350 or C4 would have been better choice.
Suspension bushings were a constant problem.
The air conditioner wasn't reliable.
Despite problems, I have fond memories of this car. It was quick enough to smoke an 82 Camaro with either V8 Chevy offered that year.
17 MPG combined was acceptable to me, but service techs screwed it up after replacing and adjusting injectors - never got better than 13 after that.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
