Bought the car in Germany after direct comparisons to Mercedes and Audi wagons. Best car I've ever driven and also best value for the features. Military pricing and home shipment was great! Smooth autobahn car, solid as a rock and quiet through 120 mph. Starts to float above 125 mph, but holds a straight line without drift. Very comfortable seats, huge interior space, great controls. Love the rain sensor, heated mirrors (needed both in Germany). My first Volvo and I'm very pleased. My next car (10+ years from now) will also be a Volvo. Since the kids will be bigger, I'll be eyeing the S60R.
