I have been driving this car for about 3 months and so far it has been a great vehicle. I recently got back into by old car (00 Outback LTD) which my wife now drives and really noticed the comfort and smooth ride of the Volvo!! I live in CO and drive to the mountains nearly weekly. It does great getting up the passes. While not excessive the power is adequate to get around people around you. Fuel eco is really not bad if you do a decent amount of highway miles. If you stick to city only it sure does drop quite a bit. I am getting between 20-21 combined. Some issues with a the air blower (makes a clicking noise) but have not yet tried to take it in for a fix. Overall a great car!!
Comfort and smooth ride. Great Audio sound. Park assist is nice feature. Cargo room good. Feels well build and beefy.
Sure better fuel eco would be great but is adequate for and AWD car. Give me a diesel option!! I don't know why there are not any AWD diesel cars out there.
