This is a fabulous automobile and quite
the sleeper. It is a big sedan in the
Euopean sedan tradition that uses space
rather than wastes it. Performance is
on par with sedans costing $15-20K
more. And what boy racer in a Honda
would ever expect a Volvo to blow right
by them? The car handles the twisty
stuff with sure-footed comfort.
This is my 5th Volvo and my favortie by
far. So far we only have 3,000 mi on it
with no negatives. I have paid my dues
with old Volvos. I am a fan. This is my
reward! A pleasure to drive.
Seats-Very comfortable. The only car I
have ever owned that I did not need to
crank the seat as far back as it would
Engine-268hp 280 lb ft torque with a
flat curve from 1,800-5,000 rpm
Sound system-the in dash 4CD changer
has an outstanding sound system.
I am not a fan of the automatic dimming
rear view mirror.
Too bad the 5 cyl gets 300hp this year.
How about the 6 getting some more
