    Hi and welcome.
    I've had a couple of Volvo's in the past. One was wonderful, one was dreadful.

    welcome, still have one Volvo and have had several in the past V70R,C70 T5, S60 D5,480ES,850 T5,360 GLT and a 340GLE - the latter 2 being the worst, but than again they were DAFs really (suppose the 480 was too but it was fun)

    Hi Mark, welcome to the forum. I also had a Volvo in the past, it was a V70R and it was to me very disappointing. I think I expected too much of it performance wise after a Sierra Sapphire Cosworth. I was tempted because the Police were using them and it didn't do what I thought it would do :rolleyes::)
