We looked at Mercedes C230 series and
Lexus ES 330. There is no comparison in
integrity and safety. The 16 inch wheel
package adds to the great looks. The
heavier glass is a surprising plus in
quietness. Even without the turbo there
is plenty of power. 100% satisfied with
the car. The dealership, unfortunately
has some service problems. I have never
had a Volvo that didn't go 250,000
miles. I expect no less from this one.
Body integrity - just walk around other
cars and finger tap the competition.
Safety speaks for itself. Rides more
smooth than my 850 model. A little
smaller though but more plush. A hot number!
Some options I wanted required a special
order and other options I didn't need
came packaged with options I wanted.
