Rock of Ages

My 3rd 9-5 in the last 20 years. Just like the previous two, this one is a pleasure to drive.
Averaging 44mpg. Solid dependable transport for all occasions. Eats long journey's up and always enough room for any task thrown at it. Passed its MOT with no issues in its 16th year.
Gonna be hard to find anything that gets anywhere near the quality, value for money and character of these brilliantly made Swedish marvels, when it finally comes the time to replace this car. One of the best kept secrets on the road. Fantastic over-engineering and a budget price to buy and run.
