If you want to purchase a car and keep it for many years, buy a Volvo!
Power window motor failed.
Sun roof seal replaced.
Control arms replaced.
Heated seats no longer hot.
Engine seals replaced.
Very durable and reliable. Comfortable on long strips. My last Volvo 740 saved my life when I was hit head on my a car going 95 mph. Can't beat that. With proper maintenance they will run forever. The car is very heavy and the in-line four banger is often underpowered with the air conditioning compressor running. People sell their Volvo's because they grow tired of them and what something new; not because they need to mechanically. This model Volvo has been a joy to own and I will only sell it for a Volvo wagon (I need more room!).
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
