This car is sneaky fast. Passing on the interstate seems lethargic until you realize you're going 80 - 90 MPH. The day after I bought it I drove 2000 miles round trip from Augusta, GA to Houston, TX and obtained an overall 29 MPG. Volvo recalibrated the engine computer so the car runs on regular gas. I'm pleased to report there are no rattles and very little wind noise. It seems solid and has very comfortable seats but has a somewhat harsh ride. The turn radius will drive you crazy, especially in mall parking lots. Overall nice car but I'm seriously disappointed in Volvo's depreciation rate, much higher than Japanese automobiles.
Leather seating, heated seats, large trunk space, strong radio, good gas mileage, respectable acceleration.
Rear wheel drive to eliminate torque steer, fix the deplorable turning radius, and stop the "Detroit" rebates that kill resale value.
