Hello,<P>I'm in the process of trying to decide between 2 Volvos. The 740T has 99k ($9k) and the 850T has 74k ($11k). Both are automatics. <P>In your opinion which would be the better deal. I'm most interested in reliability.<P>Thanks!<P>Lee

Actually, I decided to get a new Mini Cooper. Different car I know, but I thought that if I were to buy an older used car, it should be something good and substantial like a Volvo.<P>Thanks for the response though.<P>Lee

The 850T WOULD have been the better buy because $9K for a 740 is outrageous. It should be a pristine Turbo wagon and have ~50K for that price.<P>

Leew,<BR> Make sure you don't get overcharged for the MINI. I've heard stories about people paying 20k for a cooper. And that's not for the S variant. I'd get the CooperS too if I were to buy one. My dad might get one for his next car. I dunno why though.

Got my Mini Cooper yesterday. Really love it! Drove up into the Rocky Mountains west of Denver and had a blast. It's very well made and solid. People point and smile.<P>Very cool.<P>Thanks for all your responses and help anyway.<P>Cheers,<P>Lee
