When I purchased the Volvo in 1996, I had no idea that I'd still be driving it and loving it 12 years later. It is still very quiet and comfortable. I've never had any out-of-the ordinary repair issues. This is a great car!
Roomy inside, like a larger luxury vehicle.
I've never quite adjusted to the view on the passenger's side in the front...as with parking, etc. Maybe it's just me.
