Drives: Volvo 1996 850 Wagon



I'm imminently going to buy a new used Volvo wagon - I've been driving a Black 1996 850 for 12 years. The only issues I had with it were front struts and Air Conditioning (I had that fixed several times with varying degree's of success). Other than preventative timing belt it's been regular maintenance

I'm torn between getting a 2006 or 2007 XC70 with about 110K KMs or push the price point at get a 2008 with more like 145k Kms. I never liked the restyle done in 08 but it growing on me now.

Is anyone aware of any significant declining quality of the 2008 models moving forward?

My Mechanic says I lucked out with a good year - there were troubles with newer than 97's and the first 'wet bar of soap' design had it problems in 2001.

I wonder if the new series have had any growing pains?
