Lots of luck finding one.
I have had 4 245's and 3 850/v70s. I would never willingly go back to
the 245 and it's screaming heater fans and its rear wheel drive. I
liked the 245's, but I didn't know any better. The 850 and now the v70
with its FWD or AWD pulls through the snow rather than pushing the front
tires through like the 245 did. This is a big improvement. The 850/V70
also have antilock brakes, 4 air bars, side impact protection, better
gas mileage, more power, more room and better comfort. These are all
improvements. Also, I only kept my 245's 120,000 miles, while I keep my
850/v70's 180,000 miles. The reliability is that much better.
