I bought my first Volvo, a '98 V70R, a couple weeks ago. Usually a BMW buyer, I was in the market for a used 5-series wagon when my wife announced that she had put a deposit on a Volvo wagon. She called me and said, "Keep an open mind. It's not a BMW, but the interior is very comfortable, the car is very clean, and it's all wheel drive. I really think you are going to like it."<p>She was dead-on with all of that. Plus, the car is quick, fun to drive (never thought I would say that about a wagon!), and very practical. I have been having a good time reading these forums and educating myself a bit on my new ride.<p>BTW, I bought this car from JRL. I buy and sell a lot of cars, and I have never had an experience quite as pleasant as this. JRL is very knowledgeable, honest, accessible, and easy to work with. JRL, if you happen to read this, thanks for all of the post-sale support!

The good news is that she found a great car. The bad news is that I can no longer give her a hard time about her obessessive surfing of Craigslist. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">
