For the money it can't be beat
Pros: Excellent ride and stability on rough, crooked roads
Cons: Seats uncomfortable, access to driver seatbelt latchQuiet interior, shuts out road noise well; plenty of power and pep; Has excellent stability on sloping winding roads, the I-5 is a great economical engine. Lumbar supports are not comfortable and driver seatbelt reciever is hard to reach by grown-up
Hate Volvo's service department
Pros: Stereo system
Cons: Having the car servicedI will never buy another Volvo because of the awful service department. The guys at Bergeron Volvo have the worst service department hands down. The car itself is sleek, sexy and safe. I'm currently car shopping, but a Volvo is no longer an option for me.
good car, effective for long distance taveling
Pros: good handling
Cons: issues with rain and electrical problemsliked the car alot, until it gave a few problems in major rainstorms, but that is to be expected. Traveled alot with some llong distances, volvo gave a clean ride the whole way.
COMFORTABLE 4 SEAT CONVERTIBLE
Pros: seats and overall appearance
Cons: sticky window op buttons, slow roof opening/closingExcellent value elegant and most comfortable which in spite of its age still turns heads. The reliability and feeling of safety is 'VOLVO' The only problem are sticky window winder switches and steering, which needs frequent lubrication. The power roof is very slow, compared with peer group.
