This is one of the best cars I have ever owned. It is both sexy because it includes a sick body kit on the SE model, and a total beast because it's got that sweet, sweet turbo. It's way quicker than you would think. The interior is vinyl and that's sort of unpleasant, but I'll probably spring for new cloth seats soon.
Story
Went camping out in the National Forest and brought the wagon, it ended up pouring rain that night and instead of even trying to set up a tent in the down pour, we just toss the air mattress in the back of the wagon, blew it up, pushed all the other supplies into the front seats, cracked the windows, and got a great night sleep. Like, maybe that is cheating, but it was sure better than getting... (more)
Pros
So roomy, I seriously fit an entire full sized air mattress in the wagon portion of the car for a camping trip once. So luxurious. That turbo is also a nice feature, makes the car super quick... for a wagon. Don't come in expecting a Ferrari or anything, but it's for sure got some get up and go. The body kit that comes on the SE model makes the car look SOOO good. Mine is lowered a little bit more that stock which just enhances the look even further, but even before that it was just so so sexy.
Cons
After twenty years EVERYTHING is brittle. The vinyl on the seats started peeling away long before I ever even got the car and they have only gotten worse since it's become my daily driver. Also, vinyl gets SO hot which really matters living in the South. The wiring going in to my radio is 100% hacked in there, but that was probably from the previous owner. The trim inside is super brittle - stuff chips away and breaks at the slightest touch - but if you're really careful you can keep it looking pretty good.

This is, by far, the best car I have ever owned. It's built like a tank and Volvo is renown for their safety qualifications. Beyond being a great safety pick, I have the wagon edition and it is super roomy. My boyfriend and I go to a lot of thrift stores and such and I have been amazed at how much stuff you can really pack into the back of these things! Not to mention the fact that it's up over 400,000 miles and still going strong thanks to regular maintenance. These cars will really last forever if you take good care of them. Luckily, they are also quite easy to maintain, even on your own without spending a lot at a mechanics. I do all of my own work on my car and it has never been overly costly or hard to accomplish. Fuel economy has always been very reasonable. Not a gas guzzler but... (more)
Story
There are a lot of really winding scenic roads around the area and it is a favorite past time to just drive around them in the early evenings during spring and fall with the sunroof open to the darkening sky.
Pros
My favorite feature on this one is probably the Turbo. You wouldn't really expect it out of a bricky wagon like this one, but it's got some real pep lent from the turbo that makes it pretty quick at times. The sun roof is a nice perk too, especially in the heat of Florida's summers.
Cons
My vinyl interior is not holding up super well, but after 20 plus years that might be expected. Parts are sometimes harder to find than with American made vehicles, and if you HAVE to get something from the dealership or a specialty parts store, it can get quite expensive.

This wagon is just a great car! It’s super comfortable and super easy to drive. It’s not as smooth as our ’84 940 sedan, but you only notice that when going immediately from one to the other. One of my favorite things about this car is the large windows – you feel like you’re almost in a travelling living room. The car has been extremely reliable. Of course, it’s had problems, but nothing unexpected. My monthly “payment,” if you average maintenance cost since I’ve owned it, is still less than $200 a month. Fuel economy is average – about 17 miles to the gallon. I only live 4 miles from work, so it doesn’t cost me much in gas. The stereo has great sound – it’s very impressive – and the thing between the seats is great for holding cassettes. The wagon space is huge. I’ve been da... (more)
Story
I remember when my hubby and I moved into our condo, and we needed to get rugs right away. We went and bought them and didn't think we'd ever be able to get them all home, but they all fit -- easily -- in the wagon part!
Pros
Solid, fixable, comfortable, plenty of room, super smooth!
Cons
Cracking plastic, a few expensive fixes, but nothing unexpected or unreasonable for a 33-year old car! 17 MPG might be too low if you have to drive great distances.
