This has been one of the finest vehicles I have ever owned - and that includes Mercedes. I have so many people who comment on how much they love my car and then can't believe it when I tell them it's nine years old. The body style, the lack of any apparent wear, and the still beautiful orginal paint job, all contribute to its appeal. And you can't beat the service department at Volvo dealerships. They are extraordinarily helpful and accommodating. I recommend Volvo to everyone!
This car is well-built and you "feel" it when you drive. I appreciate the split back seat; slat for skiis; leather interior; premium stereo; high-quality body/paint; body style; standard features - including headlight wipers; power when you need it!
Needs better-styled cup holders (not above the window opener buttons) and those that can hold different sized cups. That's it - I love everything else.
