1989 Volvo 740 GL from North America
A trusty ol' gal
It's an old car. I've had to replace the usuals, like tires, a hose, two bearings and the muffler. The only breakdown I've had is when the bolt that attaches the alternator belt fell off. I had to replace the window regulator on the driver side, but that's pretty standard in older cars as well.
I love this car. I have a thing for square, boxy cars and this one definitely falls into that category. It runs well, I've taken it from Lansing, Michigan to New Orleans, Louisiana with little trouble (except a minor oil leak at the cap... and losing my tailpipe in Kentucky).
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
