A Volvo is not a midlife crisis car. A Lamborghini Reventón would be a midlife crisis car.
I'm 26 and I have an XC90 V8 because it fits in a unique place in the market segment.
You two need to turn in your man card. I am, and always was a scrawny pencil necked geek. When I was 26 there was a restored by me 68 firebird convertible in the garage next to a new first gen RX7 (stolen with 30,200 miles when it was 5 1/2 years old) . I was living in the city while the cars were at my folks house. the lady down the block had a volvo. she may still have that old tank.@ pengc99, og this is your midlife crisis we will both die young.. 31 here, had the car since I was 29

A station wagon for a mid life crisis. Good gravy man get a grip on yourself.
for my first mid life crisis at 29 i replaced the stolen rx with a new rx7 convertible. a few years later i wanted a sport coupe so i treated myself to my elderly neighbors milano red legend coupe with 10,165 miles on it when the four year lease ran out. that stayed outside while the two convertibles shared the garage. that may be mid life crisis #2. a few years later i gave her the legend coupe (green - the red one was stolen with 34,575 +- 5 miles) and bought myself a 944S2 to take to the train. She who must be obeyed said that was a mid life crisis until it was stolen thee spots from where the legend was stolen, and I went though five more porsches. she quit counting the mid life crisis cars after a dozen toys passed through the garage.
did i really spell read as red? shame on me.
I just read this to the boss. she said if you must have a volvo and a mid life crisis at least get the C70. glad she is more of a car guy than ...
a station wagon for a mid life crisis? i think i need a fresh depends.
you didnt say anywhere that you were looking at a SUV as a mid life crisis car. The OP did.
I'm a car nut. I will always be a car nut. When I was looking at a near luxury mid-size SUV, it was down to the:
Turns out a local dealership had a XC90 V8 at a GREAT price and we jumped on that instead.
i lived in the west village for ten years. you should have called me and I would have pointed in the right (maybe) direction.The vehicle I was most disappointed in was the Porsche Cayenne GTS. I only had it for 7 months/9200 miles. The build quality was just not great. The electronics were a total nightmare. My favorite was my 13 year old and I were using the GPS on the West Side Highway in NYC to get to an obscure address in the west Village. All was fine for the first 10 minutes of the trip and then the display went blank/black. System reboot into.....GERMAN! Correct location but all instructions in German and now no more miles - kilometers. Eventually the CEL and a dead engine doomed this vehicle. I made Porsche buy it back but I will not be buying a Porsche anytime soon. In addition the headliner on the vehicle was much more flimsy than in the Volvo! I was surprised too.
