OK, here's the choice I'm facing.
A 2002 BMW 325 xi with about 70K miles or a 2003 Volvo xc70 with nearly the same mileage. Which is safer? Which is going to last the longest with the fewest repairs? I have a 2004 X3 and love it. But, right now my husband drives a Toyota Matrix and I just don't think it's safe for the kids riding in the back. Or him for that matter. Help please.

    i have a 318i. Fantastic car. Easy to fix and fun to drive. Also have a xc70. Different animal. Great for hauling kids, dogs and groceries. Depends what you're after.

    Good luck.
