Having only owned this vehicle for a month a guess I should have had the opportunity to say N/A for the reliability. But being on the road five days a week and driving approximately 2000 miles a month, I think I can fairly assess everything else. Performance wise, the spunky little 2.4 5L has plenty of pep (no,not as performance based as an Audi or VW) and handles corners cleanly. Ergonomically, in some regards Volvo needs to be more intuitive with small things like better front cupholders. On a plus, this car is the simplest vehicle there is when it comes to changing a brake or tail light. Build quality is where I got what I hoped for, a solid, safe, fun to drive, car!
My wife would say the heated leather seats while I like the dashboard information center.
Snapped a headlight wiper arm the first time I tried to replace the headlight wipers.
