It's an expensive car with cheap hardware. It's fun to drive, somewhat economical on gas, fairly comfortable, very expensive to maintain compared to other cars I have owned. I would not buy another Volvo, as much I have always liked and admired them.
Better quality hardware; an engine that doesn't self-destruct if the timing belt goes bad.
