Question about 2007 Volvo S60 T5 Sedan
Trading cars and need one that is an AWD for the snow we get here in the mountains. Looking at an 07 Volvo S60 AWD and an 08 Subaru Forester. Both have around 45,000 miles. They're pretty similar in packages. Volvo is $10,000 and Forester is more like $17,000. Of COURSE the price matters tremendously, but all things considered generally, which of the two cars would be the better car all the way around? Any thoughts based on what you know of these two cars?
Volvo,is a premium leader in perfection,and very dependable.Although subaru is also,I have had some problems on here to solve ,very little with volvo,mostly older models,and minor things.Volvo has a good reputation ,on all aspects,and the subaru is pretty good also,but the money,well,to me,it is like steak,and hamburger ,or not that bad,maybe ground round,But this is a volvo ,for a lot less money,even a year older,you still ,I believe ,are better off .Volvo,is a better built car,just have it checked out ,and if it checks out fine,then I would go for the Volvo,You had one,and you will be more familiar with the product,and you would be getting into unfamiliar territory with the forester,so,there you have it.I hope I was helpful,somewhat,if so,please let us know,thank you.

From experience I will advice you go for 2007 Volvo S60 AWD.
I used the same car when I was in Sweden and it served me pretty well. Economical to maintain, easy to understand and works pretty good in harsh condition. You will have no regret if you buy.

Based on money and mileage. I would definitely take the volvo. They are the safest cars on the road. There is a reason for this reputation. Volvo's have also long been known for reliability. Also with the price difference. you have about a 7 grand cushion. Subaru is good don't get me wrong. But based on all the factors you have given, I would definitely go with the volvo. If you have any other questions please let me know.
