I recently got in quite a nasty accident with my '98 v70 wagon; and boy was I lucky to be in this car than any other... The guys that hit me were both taken to the hospital, and I did not even have a scratch on me.. The Volvo was total loss unfortunately. So safety is definitely my favorite thing about Volvo. Other nice features are sturdiness on the highway, and reliability.
Improve gas mileage, cheaper repairs, and most of all: The 2.5L engine has barely enough power to propel this heavy car past any other traffic when overtaking...
