We've had our Volvo for 10 years and
in the past few, it has shown much
aging. The air conditioning broke
approximately 6 times and was VERY
costly to fix. It proved a huge
paralysis in the reliability of the
vehicle, and made it a bad summer car.
It can have a stiff ride and can be
the a little noisy because of the back
door jiggling over rough pavement.
However, it is a pleasant car to
drive, with good pickup and surefooted
handling. It can accomodate up to 5
adults in comfort, and is a quiet
cruiser and highway merger.
Reliability aside, it is a
comfortable, capable, athletic,
Very good acceleration and handling,
general quietness, spacious
accomodations, handy 3rd row seat,
visibility, front seat warmers,
apart from the cracking leather on the
seats and pothole-induced noise, FIX
THE AIR CONDITIONING!!! IT IS THE
REASON WHY WE CAN'T STAND TO DRIVE IT
IN THE SUMMER!!!
