1991 Volvo 740 2.3L i from North America
Considerably the best cars ever made
The only thing to go wrong on the car since I bought it was the radiator and front struts. I do not consider this a big deal; radiators and struts take beatings, especially since they were the originals with the car. Everything else is spectacular.
Volvo, known for safety and reliability has always been my choice of car. I am 21, and will always drive a Volvo. The general consumer is not aware of all the online forums such as Brickboard.com, where you can find answers to simple problems about your car.
I am pushing 217,000 miles soon, and the car is purring away. It is a two and a half tons safety trap, and for its weight, it handles extremely well in an emergency.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Great review. I am looking at buying my first Volvo at 35 and after reading the reviews and comments about these fine autos, I'm ready to take the plunge. THANK you very much for the forum, I love them, they are very helpful..

This is a great care. I picked mine up (2.3 GLE Auto) for £250 with 190K on the clock. Other than a water pump failure (and a constant whine from the fuel pump) it's been excellent sailing without effort though 2 of it's MOTs.
