Bought used at 123k miles and now with 139k, this has been a great car. It is very solid, drives great, and for me has been very reliable. I've spent a total of $155 over the past 15 months on repairs. I would not hesitate to drive this 9 year old car cross country today. We had a snowstorm this year and the car was incredible. High praise from someone who's lived on Rabbit Ears Pass, CO. It was not pampered by the previous owner but the interior still looks almost new. So the complaints about cheap interiors just don't ring true. Its exterior design has held up well and unless you know Volvos it does not look nine. There is no rust, period.
AWD, comfort, seats (very comfortable), good mileage (28-32 highway), and plenty of passing power due to the turbo. Safety features.
