1995 Volvo 850 SE 2.5 Litre from Australia and New Zealand
The car ran well, and performed faultlessly
The starter motor was replaced prior to purchase.
Great long distance traveler.
Seats a little un-supportive for long trips. Not as fresh as a Jaguar seat after a long run.
Good economy for long distances.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I forgot to add, that I had bought this care off the Internet, and arrived from China and picked it up. A RACV mechanical check was done, and looked good.
We did over 5,000 kiometers on the trip covering two weeks. We drove from Melbourne to Canberra, and through to Batemans Bay. Then to Sydney the next day. On to Coffs Harbour and then Brisbane, and eventually Noosa Heads. On the way back we went to the Gold Coast, Ballina and via Grafton to the Hunter Vally, and stayed at Pokolbin. From Pokolbin to Gouldburn, and back to Melbourne. The car ran well, and the economy was good returning below 9 litres per 100 kilometers. That's about 31.5 mpg. No speeding tickets, but we did some spirited driving through some mountains and mainly highway driving for the balance.
