This is my first Volvo and it's much more solid than my Saab. This car is a dream on the highway; I can drive long trips and not be uncomforable or exhausted at the end of the trip. It's also very nimble at highway speeds. The turbo 5 cylinder is slow to start (no surprise) but I have to watch my speed after that. I prefer manual transmission and I really don't like the clutch; the spring needs to be redesigned because it causes me to let it up too fast sometimes. I'm so pleased that I joined the Volvo Club Of America.

Clutch spring design, need more back seat leg room, need more trunk depth
