The new owner came and picked it up for his wife. She was smitten with the car for it's comfy seats and heater (the 2 reasons why I got the car).<p>After considering what we're going to buy now, we've decided that until i find another job in this terrible economy (I haven't been unemployed since I start working at 16, or back in 96) I'm not shelling out anything reasonable until then.<p>Seeing what's on the market we were seriously considering an 04 Corolla, but when you look at what you get for the price you pay, the Volvo was a much better deal!!!Sure it requires alot more maintenance, but it's worth it!<p>Sure I've touted BMW's as being the best car, and they do handle very well, but for a comfy car that feels like a tank...dollar for dollar, the Volvo wins this challenge.<p>I think the next Volvo we guy will have to be turbo with a 5 speed. Sure they are much more pricy than the NA 5 speed we had, but I think the turbo helps justify those expenses <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>In the meantime I picked up a 95 Grand Am (I know, I fell terrible for it, but at least it has a 5 speed stick <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">. I'm anticipating my insurance rates dropping to a nice 50 bucks per month *yay*<p>Aside form that, I dont' plan on getting a new car for another month or so. Two months tops!<p>Thanks again for all the help on here...I plan to be back sometime soon<p>Happy Motoring!
