Nice vehicle. Seats are very
comfortable and engines gives great
performance for a 5 cylinder. Tight
steering and excellent brakes. Volvos
are quite expensive to maintain but
safety is the reason to consider a
Volvo. I have a 16 year old son just
starting to drive. Why consider
somrthing small and not safe.
Engineering is excellent. Volvos are
over built and should last a long long
time. Safety and the looks of the
vehicle. I am veyr pleased with it.
I would recommend a slightly higher
gear ratio for the automatic
transmission. It is not bad, but is
far has a far lower gear ratio than
the 5 speed manual.
