We changed our Passat wagon for a Volvo XC70 and will definitely keep it at the end of the lease. We have never owned such a sturdy and comfortable car. This car rocks! For a second car, we are considering another Volvo. You definitely get your money's worth.
Love the grocery tray in the back. When we went camping, we could put our garbage bags on the grocery tray and not worry if they leaked, because you can wash it. Also, absolutely love the steering. Handles great in snow and rain.
Insulate the metal handbar on the passenger side. It gets cold during winter.
