Love this car. Can't ask for better car for the money.
Awesome car and great on gas.
Sporty and comfortable sedan. One of first Toyota's with SS timing belt chain and exhaust. Just replaced muffler at 242,000 miles and 11 years. Interior fabric is only thing that wasn't ideal and quite comfortable. Peppy 5 speed manual and tinted power windows makes the newer Camry seem a bit boring and last made on the Lexus line. 17" rims with power sun/moon roof make it a daily joy and 2-3 days a year with it was AWD, however for other 362-363 love it. Starting to burn oil at 235K.
Does well in snow. Very responsive handling. One of the best slow cars to drive fast. Has never been in for a repair, only regular maintenance.
I get very good gas mileage. The only thing I don't like about my car - or the thing I dislike most is the fact that I have to take it to a mechanic to have the transmission fluid checked - there's no dip-stick in the engine which I find very annoying.
In love with my car!!! I drove a BMW 328i and a Mercedes C300 before driving the Volvo. Totally happy with my purchase and am now a "Volvophile"!
