The reason I asked is that I lived in Charleston for 14 years. There is a long history of Volvo's there & as you say, in that climate you really don't need AWD.
Back in the 70's/80's for Volvo, there was Rumph's off of Archdale St downtown. They moved uptown & it changed hands a few times since. I think it has morphed into Reputable Volvo but I left there in '01 so I can't really comment on their service.
I never had one but several people I knew with a 760/960 had issues, I'd stick with the 4cylinders.
I wouldn't mind finding a nice southern car myself.
