This is the most favorite car that I've owned (Nissan Maxima - 2 of them and an Acura Legend). January 2009 turned over 200K miles. Smooth ride and super dependable. Power is there when needed, so don't underestimate this car where performance is concerned. Premium fuel must be used, always. I average in-town 20.4 miles per gallon. Regular maintenance by Volvo specialized mechanic is paramount. I wish they still made these cars.
Wood dash, analog control panel with clock, and the fact that you can "peel wheels" or "get a wheel" with this car.
Cup holders are inadequate. AM/FM radio reception is limited with antenna embedded in windshield.
