I have the manual trans. and I love flipping through gears on the back country roads. The volvo rides really well, and brings a strong sense of safety while inside. The S70 has surprising jump and performance for a 5cyl. The car handles great in snow and rain (firestone affinity tires), hugs tight corners well, and driving the S70 leaves me daydreaming of rally car racing! -no joke- Only a few minor quirks but overall this car is flying under the radar as an awesome sedan - and this is comparing to the bmw 3series and vw passat
Flimsy cup holders. the car is designed for safety so the interior can take a while to adjust to-odd head rests, blind spots, and the feeling that any way you adjust the seat you are still sitting up straight. Expensive sensor repair(I hear) Have yet to fix my O2 sensor for 6months out of bill fear
