The car is very solid, it is well appointed with heated seats, retractable sun roof, the 2.4l motor has turbo. Overall this was a very good purchase: I travel many highway miles, the car hugs the road, and the turbo makes the fuel economy soar. The maintenance fits into the domestic price league so Costco oil changes & lubes for $35 are perfect choice for budget minded car owners. The awd in the recent snow with all season tires was ample. Overall, a very good car, fun to drive and safe with the kids.
- heated seats - turbo on the motor, gifts of fuel economy - ease of maintenance (not essential to see <$$$$$> dealer) - retractable sun roof.. let the sunshine in - hip looking car for a 2.4l.
- the service light is nearly impossible to turn off. It is clear that Volvo wants you to pay the customary $29 for the technician to reset it. Bummer.
