Totally boring great car that does what it was designed to do
Had to clean out and adjust that British horror, the Stromberg carburettor.
A dull, solid, practical car.
Carburettor is OK once cleaned out and adjusted, but is weak point.
I've been told by 25-30 year old workmates that it looks like a truck (took it as a compliment) and the huge bumpers scare would-be tailgaters away.
Unfortunately used parts are very rare in France. Dealers are acceptable for new parts, but Volvos are "class" cars here with a corresponding high parts cost.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
