I currently own a 1999 Volvo S80 T6 which I had planned to drive into the ground and own forever. This has not been the case. After 4 yrs and 55,000 miles the car is costing me a fortune in repairs. I will never own another Volvo. I'm currently looking at the 2004 MB E500 4matic and the new 2004 BMW 545i. My concern is quality. I want a vehicle I can own for 10 to 15 years, put 150,000 miles on it and have it not bleed me dry. With the DaimlerChyrsler and FordVolvo mergers/acquisitions I'm skeptical that the quality remains in these Euro-brands. Any thoughts??
