About

I purchased this car two years ago because I knew Volvo was built for safety and I have a 4-year old riding around with me. This is my second Volvo. My first was a 1969 944. That was a great car. The stick shift was the longest I had ever seen. It reminded me of a cartoon, but I can't remember which cartoon. I just remember the shape of the car and it being on TV.
This station wagon has been a bit of a disappointment. I think someone poured some leak block in it and it finally wore off. I hear an air leak under the driver's seat (outside) and I think it is the turbo line because of the failed performance I am now getting. I stall out during o/d acceleration. I get cappachino from a hot dip stick. Other than that, the car is great. I wish I could fix it, but my mechanic skills do not extend to such repairs on a foreign vehicle. My only option is to list it for sale unless a mechanic comes along and gives me a sweet deal on repairs. A friend told me she just paid $1,700 for similar repairs. That is far beyond my financial capabilities. Too bad, too. It started out being such a great ride. I love the sun roof, especially. Heated seats are great for everyone - except those of us who have hot flashes and would rather have refrigerated seats. Now that might influence my decision to repair or replace. Has anyone invented such a seat -- yet? My Idea! Share the royalties if you run with this idea.
