This car is solid and feels very safe. It's interior is classy, substantial. I have ridden in other, so-called more "luxurious" SUVs and find that they seem cheaply made, and plastic compared to the Volvo. On the freeway, I feel that I can hold my own in this very solid vehicle.
The interior is so beautiful, as is the exterior. The car is classic and even though I had no intention of buying an SUV, I fell in love with it when I drove it. I had always thought it was the best looking SUV on the road.
Better gas mileage would be nice. It does have the typical Volvo engine feel, which is a little sluggish, but not enough of an issue to make me buy a cheaper looking luxury SUV.
