    Love the 9-5 wagons. Was my wife's favorite car in manual.


    Those old Cougar and Buick wagons were massive beasts. The Olds was a pretty unique one:

    I do miss me my first car, a '77 Plymouth Fury Wagon with the 318. The thing could not drive in a straight line, however it could do it really fast.

    The AMC Eagle, I was going to post a pic, but wanted to save it for a "what ski car should I buy?" thread.

    Here's an old favorite

    Sad ending to Jon Olsson's Audi Avant.

    That Saab AWD? What kind of a shitshow is it for service since they aren't a company anymore? Actually, I'm not even going there. She's not what I would consider automotively inclined.
    I still call it The Jake.

    Ditto. Buddy had a 4x4 SR-5 Tercel Wagon. Amazing traction.

    I'm going to look into this one. The mileage and price seem to not match up.

    They only have FWD but service/parts are not a problem in most metro areas. If you are at all handy most things are DIY'able.

    Actually the 9-3 Aero had AWD. And a turbo V6.

    I have no experience with Audi's or Volvo's. Just starting a cursory look at replacing our '03 Outback. Thinking something a little nicer than the Subaru so tentatively eyeing the V90 with AWD or an Allroad. It would be a commuter and drive to the ski hill (with 3 kids) car for the most part. I know the V90 is new, but does anyone have general experience with both makes of cars and have a preference?

    So unless that MB doesn't check out and the repairs don't look to be insane I think I'm going to tell her to get the XC70 T6. Nearly $10k more is a price bump for sure but it's a 2 year newer ride, 300hp, bigger, 30k less miles and takes regular.

    I did mention the BM will be so much more fun to corner in and it has the insanely frustrating iDrive (which means Nav), but hey.

    That makes sense right? That's worth 10g isn't it?

    I'm on my 4th Volvo, a V70R, and I've been generally happy with every one. I think Audi makes some nice cars, but there is no way on earth I'd own an Audi without a bumper-to-bumper warranty.

    Not awd. Front. Its not as bad as youd imagine on service if you find a good local saab guy thats honest. I got lucky in that respect. There are still some dealers that work on them that have transitioned to new brands but still have techs. Parts seem mostly available thus far.

    Mines my parents old car. If i have some free time i will go through the service records ( they literally kept every one of em) and get you a rough idea of repairs since it was new.

    Yeah, supposedly they are becoming more reliable but it's still not as good as other makes.

    It's not just a reliability issue with Audi; they can be frighteningly expensive to work on when they need periodic maintenance or fix when they break down.

    ^^^ Having said that, I would sever a limb for an RS6 Avant.

    Meet Scarlett


    I loved, LOVED my Legacy GT, right up until I totaled it in November.

    I have found volvos to be really expensive for maintenance as well.

    Scarlett hasn't been a cheap date, but my other 3 Volvos were pretty damn reliable.
