Other reasons to buy a Volvo

ReviewAfter many miles(145,000), I still
enjoy driving the car. It handles and
brakes exceptionally well for a four-
door sedan. The seats and roominess
make long drives easy as it is fun to
drive. The only complaint is minor. The
power does not match its precise
handling capabilities. The 2.9 inline-6
is smooth and free-reving but this
chasis could handle much more than the
200+hp that came from Sweden. Although
not slow by any means, I would like to
have sports car acceleration to match
the sports car handling.
Best FeaturesMy favorite feature of this car is the overall interior feel. The analog gauges and controls are all in the right spots and it is not filled with cheap gimmicks and gadgets that distract the driver.
Worst FeaturesThe only suggested inprovement would have to deal with the newer line of Volvos. Although the models of late are beautifully sculpted, I prefer the perfected box. There is no need to think outside the box, when you've perfected the box. Bring back the Swedish Bricks of old.
