One of our grad students just told me that her Volvo needs three sensors replaced and it's going to cost her $700. That seems a tad bit high to me, but apparently "Volvos are more expensive."

I had a Volvo from 87 to 89 I all but bankrupted me. Every part was so expensive.

It was the main reason I bought a Subaru two months ago. I looked at the Volvo and seriously considered it, but the maintenance on them is just too costly.

Well, she's an international student. Which probably means that her family is moderately wealthy.

Or, possibly, it's a very old used Volvo.

Sensors can be pretty expensive, too, and they can require a lot of labor to get them in. I've spent a good chunk of money getting sensors for my Saturn SL. (But I don't remember how much.)
