Chip2447 BS: Taurus vs. Volvo station wagon (50) RE: BS: Taurus vs. Volvo station wagon 20 Jun 07


I've owned 3 pre-owned Volvos, each at least 10 years old at the time, and each with well over 100,000 miles on them. I wouldn't have hesitated to drive any one of them across the Country (USA) and back. In fact in the mid 80's my dad, my brother and I all used it to get to work; Dad and my brother would leave at7 am and drive 30 miles to drop dad off at work, then my brother would drive back home. Then he and I would take off (30 miles again) to take him to work. then back home I came, only to drive back to town to pick dad up and drop me off at my place of employment, you can see where this is leading...I hope...We were putting on average better than 200 miles a day on a 13 year old 1972 144.

My 1975 242 had somewhere in the nieghborhood of 500,000 miles on it and the last25k or so were HARD miles, I know, I put them there.

As far as parts availablity is concerned, Volvo is now owned by Ford so it shouldn't be that big of deal now.

My vote is Volvo...
