My wife and I had considered Volvo's several times over the years and I finally got tired of the lousy mileage in my truck and traded it in on a Black Sapphire, S60 2.5T with sport package, gorgeous beige leather interior and premium package (including cool wood steering wheel). I thought I would miss my truck but this car is such a pleasure to drive that I haven't. Nicely refined, good acceleration and surprisingly good fuel economy. There's a little too much body lean and the turning radius is a bit wide but other than that, I am extremely pleased. A GREAT alternative to the 3 series BMW, which are a dime a dozen in south Florida. I get lots of looks and compliments. Highly recommended!
Comfortable, upscale interior (though a little short on rear leg room); great exterior styling and a real delight to drive.
Tighter turning radius. Get rid of daytime running lights. Decrease the space between top of tires and fender for a sportier, "hunkered down" look. BMW does this very well.
