this car does not perform. it's got a bit of turbo but it doesn't effectively come on until higher rpms of third gear. the car handles like a beast. high center of gravity, extreme understeer. this car may initially spark the interest of a twenty-something looking to mod this swedish turbo, but they will find little in the way of aftermarket support. this is a great car for mommies with a heavy foot... but watch out for that gas mileage. mine's terrible. boy racers: look elsewhere... you wouldn't want to pay this much to be whipped by an accord (which gets better mp's). push it on the backroads and you'll end up in a ditch. handling is that bad. car needs more R&D
safety's a big plus. seats look great, but are uncomfortable for anything into the hour range. premium stereo is nice. i am dissapointed in my purchase. better appointed cars can be had for less. mine gets much less mpg's than stated. this car is all safety, minimul comfort, minimal fun
car tracks terribly. will follow any line in the road. mine has always pulled to the left. alignment and wheel/tire swaps have not fixed this. volvo's stumped. windows squeak when opened/closed. wind noise. expensive for lack of performance as well as basic interior. i will be selling it
