    2006 Volvo XC90 - FWD

    Pros: Anti rollover.

    Cons: Ride, performance, cheap interior materials.

    Advice: After much research, I've found that the cars have multitude of problems and are way expensive to maintain. You're better off going with a Subaru Tribeca, Toyota, or Honda. Volvo has turned into cheap, overpriced garbage.

    There was vibration in the steering at anything above 50 mph. The vehicle was not quiet.

    2005 Volvo V50 - 2.4i A FWD

    Pros: Heated Seats

    Cons: The minimal amount of leg room in the back seats

    Advice: be sure to ask the dealer policy for software downloads

    This vehicle looks and drives GREAT! for a 2.4 liter it has exceptional performance...BUT, I have had numerous different electrical issues. The dealership, who has been great, says when something electrical stops working, a software download is needed. Seems odd but in the one year I have had the vehicle I have had six trips to the dealership for electrical components not working. I would buy another Volvo as they are great, but this one just has too many issues for me.

    2005 Volvo S60 - 2.5T A FWD

    Pros: Sport kits

    Cons: nothing

    Advice: never buy this model

    I have experiance a noises & high Vibrations coming from the car (from the breaking system), which look like is caused from an engineering faults in designing or making the gap between the Break disk and Break pads wider than what is should be. this issue been expericance since the first week of owning the car, and the local dealer workshop in the city i'm in now keep experimenting on the breaking system (changes many thing like, break disk, pads, model of break pads, lequid,...etc) and nothing took the sound off. Moreover, when you drive the car for long time, you will start to hear noises coming from the steering when you turn it, also it's happen that the car start to shack in the morning when first started or turnned on, and its went off after it self after that.

    2006 Volvo S80 - FWD

    Pros: Front Drivers Seat

    Cons: Overall quality of interior specs

    Advice: Check EVERYTHING out before you buy. Look at Audi.

    The overall drive of the vehicle is smooth, however, it sometimes lags when pushed to access the freeway onramp. Overall comfort is just OKAY. The interior does lack internal storage space and the cupholders are not placed conveniently. The plastic around the locks keep coming loose and the moonroof leaks when I take it through the automatic carwash. For me, its the little things that take away from the overall satisfaction. Not the quality I expected for the price.

    2007 Volvo C70 - Base

    Pros: Hard Top Roof that folds

    Cons: Everything is perfect, perhaps slightly underpowered

    Advice: Buy it

    I recently purchased a 2007 C70, it is the real deal in every way!!! My previous C70 was not so perfect, I bought my 2004 C70 new in March of 2004. I loved, and still do love my Car. As time has gone on, I have realized a few flaws that must, and apparently have been addressed. First of all, the Shake and lack of rigidity for such an expensive car is poor. This car was not very well planned out, I have the larger wheels which rub against the wheel wells, I have had trouble with the steering, and in the last two years when I start the car, it seems to rev and then stal immediately, I have to wait 10 seconds and start again, this second try usually works, but again, Russian Roulette with a car of this stature is just not appropriate. Cowl shake is also poor, and I am not that happy with the handling. With all of this being said, I love the car on a whole, it has been fairly reliable, and the workmanship is unmistakable, I find the comfort incredible, as well as the appearance. Last week I went into Volvo for service and looked for a second time at the new 2007 C70, I fell in love and soon bought the newer, more rigid, and 10X better version. After the test drive, I was sold...the differences are unreal, I would prefer this new C70 over ANY german counterpart, and I have to reccomend the same to any C70 owner.

    2006 Volvo S80 - AWD

    Pros: I feel REALLY SAFE in it!

    Cons: There is very very little interior storage space - places to stash my stuff!

    Advice: Enjoy it !

    Very comfortable, as long as you're in the front seats! Not a lot of rear leg room, although this is the largest of the Volvo sedans. My husband is 6'5' tall, so we consider this a 'three-seater vehicle.' Peppy and responsive, as long as you factor in the typical turbo-lag from a full stop. Mine has 3,000 miles on it, and I'm averaging 20 mph around town.
