My parents have a 14 year old 240DL that they are thinking about trading in on a new volvo. The thing still runs great though.scooby said:I don't know about you but volvos seem to get discarded rather quickly by owners . I rarely see many older volvos on the road then again never offroad. Cost would be the major problem and maintainence cost. Try buying volvo patrs they are too spendy!! can you say open your wallet !! Subaru's rule !
