This is my first Volvo,
I was looking for a driver's car and this is it.
The driving confort and position is superb.
The power is very good at low RPM, the 2.5 L. turbo has a lots of tork at only 1500 RPM. and no turbo lag.
If you are looking for a reliable European car, this is it, the ride is very confortable for our bad roads.
I selected the 16' wheels for that reason.
I just drove from Vermont to Nova Scotia in 12 hours non stop with zero back problems.
I dont understand why this car is not selling more as mine was the price of a Civic SI and Volvo is having huge promotions with 5years waranty and free maintenance 0% finance and $5000. off.
Seats confort for my very bad back, powerful engine and solid feel. Fun car to drive on twisty roads. Great craftmenship for the price.
