I usually buy new car every 4-5 years,
but I can't this time. I love my Volvo,
and it is a wagon! The seats are
comfortable to sit in (mine are
leather, the car responds to my every
command. All the controls are in the
right place. The seat belt adjusts to
fit my female 5'4" body (most don't).
The cargo space is unbelievable large.
I bought a new 35" TV, TV stand and VCR
and all fit comfortably, still in their
boxes in the cargo area without
removing my child seat. The back seat
folds down to offer even more room.
This car is a keeper.
Two problems: 1. Headlight bulbs need
to be replaced frequently. 2. The seat
belt retractor has also had to be
replaced twice. This particularly
bothersome because the seat belt gets
stuck, the metal engagement plate
catches on the seat and stabs me in the
arm. Nasty bruises!
