I've been reading with great interest the many conversations on here regarding VIP warranties, getting "maximum enjoyment" out of a car by "having" to purchase it with low mileage, CPO, etc. Others I've noticed have simply been temporary Volvo owners, venturing or ready to venture on to Audis, BMWs, etc. I've been in Volvos for over 15 years, most were purchased used and I have put well over 100,000 miles on the 8 that I have owned (one of which was a 2001 S60) with the exception of one which saved my life in a crash, and never had a major problem or failure with any of them. One of my current bricks is 15 years old with 200,000 miles. It still runs like new, although admittedly it has required an investment on my part over time to keep it that way. I think there are some diehard Volvo fans on here who keep and maintain their cars for a lifetime, and if an R is well maintained by the owner, one should be able to drive it far longer than the average vehicle on the road (around 15-20 years). We all are aware of the vehicle's weaknesses, IE angle gear, wheel bearings, etc. While it definately isn't as robust as a 240, once most of these issues are rectified, the R should make for an outstanding vehicle for years to come. So I ask the following:<p>1) Are many R drivers on here newbie Volvo owners, who would be afraid to own an R or other Volvo past warranty?<p>2) How long do many of you intend on keeping your R, and for how many miles?
