Just lost my 12 year old 5.0 L Mustang
and was looking for a more "adult" car
(safer with more room). But I did not
want to totally lose that engine power
that I had with the Mustang. I did a
ton of research and narrowed my
selection to the Lexus GS300, the W8
Volkswagon Passat, and the Volvo S60 T5.
The Volvo just felt right. It looks
good, its soooo comfortable, its safe.
And when you floor it it almost feels
like the ole Mustang.
Heated seats that are soooooooo
comfortable. An unbelievable amount of
hp in a small (2.4l) engine. The outside
design is cool and classy. Air bags
everywhere. Good stereo system. Quiet
ride. Normal drivers will not notice the
turbo torque that everyone talks about.
This car could easily have an adjustable
center arm rest and it does not. There
are coffee cup holders but they should
be on the front dash and they are not.
More room in back (an inch would do). A
little more rear visibility.
