All and all I love my Volvo. I would not buy a newer one as Ford has ruined Volvo. My only complaint is the rattles. The vibration of the engine when the brake is on makes the whole car rattle and buzz. Also, over nearly any bump the suspension jars you, not rides like a tank (as old volvos do).
Comfortable and roomy. The stereo is excellent and the safety features.
A more cushy suspension. The car is unusually harsh over pavement with any imperfections.
