Bought this car because I gave my Honda Civic to daughter. Thought it would be reliable and safe. Well it turned out to be safe, as an unmoving car is pretty safe. The car frequently stalls out for no reason and the dealership hasn't been able to figure out what the problem is (after changing out numerous electrical parts and sensors). I would get another car, but I went back to school and don't have the money too. I've dumped about $3,200 into car, wish I would have never purchased.
Comfort, when it's running.
It's a little late for improvement suggestions at this point. With all that's going on in the economy right now, I think American auto makers are now trying to turn out good vehicles. This car was made when making cars expendable was status quo. I just thought Volvo was different.
