Why buy a Volvo?
My reasons was space, performance, and
a raise at work. This wagon zooms to
60mph in 7.0 seconds with 240hp and 220
ft. lbs of torque @ a low 2000 rpm.
Love the Turbo! It’s a solid
performer, but not as smooth as I had
hoped. Steering feel, cornering feel,
and brake feel just don’t feel as solid
and confidence inspiring as I had
hoped. The power band, however, keeps
me coming back for more every day.
Timing belt was just changed so time
will tell how this hellion holds up.
If you see a white wagon on your tail,
you may want to move to the right…
240 hp / 220 ft-lbs of torque, The
seats are very comfortable, the 240
watt sound system is crystal clear!
Improved steering feel (not anywhere
near laser-sharp), Improved brake-feel
(brakes work fabulously but don't
inspire confidence), alot of general
vibration during travel (alignment,
balance, brakes, and shocks all
checked)...not a BMW (but didn't pay
like one either).
