This car has been reliable and trouble-free for the first 8000 miles. The base with the 5-spd has plenty of get up and go for most driving situations. Car handles great in the snow and rain, especially with Stability Traction Control. A great car for the money if you take it easy on options. Highly recommend the Volvo Overseas Delivery program unless you can get a great deal off the lot.
Seats, sound system, footwell lighting, STC, design, gas struts for hood/trunk.
Center arm rest too low and barely useful, lumbar support difficult to get to and adjust, large turning radius, head-liner rattles a bit sometimes.
