This is my first Volvo. I was considering BMW, Mercedes, Jaguar, even Lexus. Value for dollar, and the fact that the Volvo IS the safest vehicle on the road (I did my homework), it was a clear choice: Volvo. I am in love with this car! The dealership here in Las Vegas treats me like a king. I've never had such a wonderful car buying experience.
For five cylinders this car has the power I need when pulling out onto the freeway. I used to have to turn my Toyota a/c off to pull out. Rides like a ocean liner-smooth. I feel so safe and protected in this car. If the unthinkable happens, I know Volvo has got my back, literally with WHIPS.
Shorter, smaller drivers may have a problem seeing out of the rear window because of the head retraints front and rear.
