    You googled didn't you?

    I told you no googling.

    I roll is correct.

    But it sounds as if you have a jag and a volvo

    No, I didn't google it. Anybody who has worked for Volvo knows what that word means. "Jag" means I. 🙂

    Drewnogal loves Volvo so much she bought a Ford.


    A long time ago my eldest brother bought an NSU.

    He said it stood for NO SHAGGING USE.

    The car gave a lot of trouble, he had it less than
    a year before he got rid of it.

    Yeah!

    Sorry, that's just my instinctive reaction to 'Volvo'.

    I bought a new 1986 Volvo stationwagon, great car, 4 cylinder, 4 speed standard with electronic O/D lots of power and great mileage. Had it for about 12 years then it started to "nickle and dime" me. More like everytime I took it in for something I used to give them a cheque for $600 and said if it's more let me know.

    You drove the same car for 12 years?

    Bought my Volvo V40 - the small wagon - in 2001, it's done 220,000 km without a hiccup and the service guy says it was the best Volvo model ever made and still better than most cars on the road today. And I did know it means 'I roll' every Volvo owner knows it.
    I've always regarded Volvo jokes as disguised envy, and I've never worn a hat. Had quite a few speeding tickets though.

    I drive cars until they have their first big problem, then sell it and get a new one.

    How often do you change?

    Every 3-4 years on average; although my wife kept her last one for 8 years.
