I just drove home in my new Platinum
Green Metallic Volvo 2.4T with
Geartronic 5 speed automatic. I chose
this car over the Acura 3.5RL and the
G35 Infiniti. While both the other cars
were very nice, I felt the Volvo had
the best combination of comfort,
safety, performance and styling. Just
getting into this car evokes a feeling
that the other two couldn't equal. As
for reliability, I will have to judge
that later. However, I have two friends
who have Volvos, one with over 200,000
miles and the other with over 100,000
and neither have had any major
problems. I'm looking forward to a
long comfortable ride.
Absolutely gorgeous styling both inside
and out. The Taupe Leather seats are
the most comfortable I've ever
experienced. The 2.4T 5cyl turbo is
extremely smooth with abundant power
for all situations. Side curtain and
seat bolster airbags and overall
construction and safety features.
It would be nice if the heated seats
had more settings than just low or
high, however that is not a big issue.
