This is the 4th Volvo I have owned and the first AWD. Since I do a lot of winter/mountain driving this made sense and roads I would have never made it up without chains, this car handeled like the roads were dry. Only two minor suggestions. The instrument panel doesn't show engine temp and the drivers side windshield wiper won't clear the hood and stay up when I want to clean the glass. Maybe in the 2011 model they can fix this. Otherwise I'm very happy.
AWD in mountain winter conditions.
Improve MPG, add engine temp guage to dash, and allow divers side windshield wiper to clear hood and stay up for easier windshield cleaning.
