What are you looking for in a car? Do you want power and handling? The
best fuel economy you can get? Do you plan to work on the car yourself?
I personally have a particular liking for the 240 and 740 Turbo wagons
but those, especially the former are getting a bit long in tooth so
finding a real nice one for sale is rare.
For newer stuff, the 850's are generally regarded as good aside from '93
which had a few issues. People like their 960s but they're a bit more
complex, the V90 is essentially the same car.
