2006 Volvo S60 R 4dr Sedan AWD (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)
After one initial problem with a connector for the 4C system, which was repaired very efficiently, this car is absolutely a joy to own. I put on a lot of highway mileage and am constantly surprised at the reserve of power available. Ramps and corners can be taken safely at speeds that would couse wrecks in other cars. The Canadian model comes with every option (except snow tires) that anyone needs or could want. I considered Audi, BMW and G35, but these cars just don't have the same power/safety per dollar value (the Audi and G35 are also very unattractive vehicles, in my opinion). BMW (M3)is too small, lacks 4WD, expensive to repair and more suitable for people who want snob appeal.
Many: Engine - very strong with 6 speed, brakes are phenomenal, cornering, stereo, interior design.
