Our Volvo saved our life/limbs! We were recently hit at full speed from a guy who ran a red light! our car absorbed all the impact. None of us were severely injured (thank God!). I miss my 'Velvet' already :-(. We always got tons of remarks on the styling and the interior. Very sturdy, high quality equipment inside and out. Looked great with 18" rims on it. I bought it fresh from the Swedish factory in 2005, and had ZERO mechanical problems in 5 yrs of driving, including driving 2 yrs on the autobahn! My car was totaled in the accident but I plan to get another. I am Volvo for life. :-)
10-speaker Bose surround sound with 6-disc in dash changer was excellent! fog lights looked impressive in pics :-D. The T-Tec seats were easy to clean! Nice tight turning with great handling. auto-adjusting illumination is awesome!
Better gas mileage for the size of vehicle otherwise this may be a 'flawless' car! The Swedes reign supreme in my book :-)
