thanks for your reply.
I am located in Canada, so perhaps this is why I've been able to find one. I'm looking for a used AWD wagon and needless to say my choices are limited.
1. 91-95 Audi 100/A6 quattro
pros: cool car, great interior, proven AWD
cons: hard to find, questionable reliability
2. 91-92 Mercedes 300TE 4Matic
pros: great build quality
cons: crappy AWD, expensive to buy & service
3. 92-94 Subaru Legacy Turbo
pro: fun to drive
cons: extremely expensive and hard to find parts
4. 95-98 Subaru Legacy Brighton
pros: reliable engine, proven AWD system, cheap
cons: anemic, rough engine, expensive parts, poor crashworthiness
5. 96-97 Volvo 850 GLT AWD
pros: fun, comfortable & luxurious, ?
cons: expensive, how is the part time AWD?, ?
Can you please give me more insight into this. Is this Volvo a good idea? I would go for it if I knew it was as reliable (or close to) as a Subaru
Initially I was set on a Scooby Legacy, however the prospects of expensive maintenance on a utilitarian car made me look at perhaps something more enjoyable to drive.
By the way this 850 that I'm considering has 90,000 KM (56,000 miles), manual, leather, sunroof. They're asking $23,500 CDN (about US$15,000). What do you think?
