as the saying goes, Volvo's are the sweedish car Saab owners aspire to. Sabbs while cool, yes, are un-reliable and difficult. I wouldn't wish one on anyone.ohhh so it was even shittier? god i remember my old saab back when they were saab owned and fuck that noise....american intervention actually helped. thanks for pointing that out lol
still gm > fuck-vo
You still won't sell me on GM either. you're fighting a losing battle. I won't try to say volvo is > GM, because its all opinion and personal experience. Every GM experience I've had has been that they are cheap junk. I'll never drive/own one again if I get my say in it. Also, not too much in their current lineup excites me.
Not that I think ford's involvement in volvo was bad either, as you say, domestic intervention helped a lot, on both sides, ford gained a lot of engineering and safety knowledge, Volvo gained a lot of knowledge on what it takes to sell cars in the US market. I mean, the S60, C30, V70, all awesome cars.
and fords new lineup > anything GM has to offer in its line up.
And they didn't have to steal my money to fund their failing operations and are capable of running a successful buissness all by themselves without begging for uncle sam to save them.
