I've owned many Volvos, this 2001 is a T5. It's been as tough as nails. I've repeatedly towed my 4k lbs boat, it's been driven hard and it never gave up on me. It's got 135k miles on the clock and going strong.
Reliability, best seats in the business
Wondering steering wheel, below average feedback from the road (R model was big improvement here)
