    I have some questions.

    Can I run regular pump gas (not high oct) ie 89oct?
    If you have one what has been your gas milage? (mot really worried my current car gets 16-18mpg now)
    Any issues with the trucks IE things that break.

    Any other information you can give me would be great

    looking to spend 28-32K for one bunch in my area 2003s with low milage.

    Thanks all

    89 octane or any mid-grade will be fine in it.

    Hell ya,

    Sitting in NYC traffic you come to relize you want to be in somthing big with some suspention travel. Something with a V8 and a inter that you will want to be in. The Nav fits the bill and for 30K for one with under 30k miles is very attrative. Plus I doing 22-24s for bling and I'll be happy.

    I have... I like volvo cars (s60, especially) and I have grown to like bmw more and more... I have always HATED mercedes. I used to like volkswagen, but no longer.... I really dislike their product... although the passat (sp?) is comfortable.

    I love the tourage but it has many problems and with long term ownership it would be more costly to maintain.



    For example brake pads on a Navi are like 40 bucks on the VW they are Bremebo so at least 150-200 bucks



    Oil change on navi about 35 bucks on VW 180 from dealer because of an odd filter that needs to be drained.



    Very problematic and I don't have time to go back and forth to the dealer to address issues. Also the VW would not look as good with 24in spinners LOL.

    You have to drive the Navi. It's a big truck but the 03 and up are fully independent suspention with a rack for steering. Also the gas milage is about the same for both I was looking at a tourage V8 BTW because they stop offering the V10 until next year.

    I also Like the volvos. The new S40s with the slim center is very trick but there truck does not really do it for me IMHO.

    I don't know of a volvo truck... unless you mean semi-truck.

    As for the S40, I really like the looks, but after driving one, it left a bad taste in my mouth... Very lacking in the performance department, imo. (drove a T5 AWD 6MT)
