This is the second Volvo wagon we've
owned (first was a 1982) and it's
amazing how similar they are. Straight
line acceleration is barely adequate
for highway merging but overall ride
and handling are great and turn radius
and ease of parking are unmatched by
anything out there. Gas mileage could
be better but I keep reminding my self
what a solid, safe car this is and
then I don't worry about it so much.
Cup holders are flimsy, don't hold
anything upright bigger than a dixie
cup, and put the drink right where the
driver's elbow should be resting.
