I never owned a Volvo until I bought this for my
wife. It quickly found its way into my
hands - a deal I could only swing by agreeing to
buy her a new XC70 wagon as a replacement.
Neither of us can imagine owning any other brand
now. This car is perhaps the most complete vehicle
one can own. It has just about everything -
unsurpassed safety, good performance, acceptable
reliability, room, AWD, the most comfortable seats
I've ever experienced, and an understated elegance.
I have around 8000 miles now and have had no
problems. Like other reviewers, I now look for any
excuse to drive. Despite Ford's ownership - this is
still a Volvo at heart. I absolutely love it.

No major complaints. Minor improvements to fit
and finish are possible.
