I purchased this as a certified preowned, and have loved it ever since. While there definitely is some turbo lag and torque steer when you punch it, it's still pretty darn quick. Just make sure you hold the steering wheel tightly when you floor it. The seats are so comfortable in the front, but the back seats need more leg room for my two kids. I love the simplicity of all the Volvo controls, but some need changing. The heated seats should turn off automatically when you turn off the car. Also, the door lock button only has one button for both lock and unlock. It should have one for each. Finally, the key fob has a slight delay, and my kids are always a bit too quick on the doors.
Seats, power, surround audio system, overall ease and simpicity of driving.
Turning radius is the worst! My Expedition turns circles around it. Improve gas mileage. Why does teh factory recommend premium gas when every Volvo dealer tells me regular in any Volvo is OK? Just to get their estimated MPG up?
