I love this car
Pros: Great steering, easy to control, great brakes,dependable
Cons: SeatI would definitely recommend this car to a friend.
Very good vehicle
Pros: The individual heat/cool button for front seats.
Cons: The comfort of a big car.Volvo has been dependable and fun to drive. It has room in the back for all my art easels, etc. The safety bags in front and side are comforting to be there and the engine construction is good to slide sideways in case of an accident. It rides easy but much smoother when carrying a load. I like it.
Pros: road manners
Cons: cup holders and lack of space for cell phone package
Advice: opt for the 2.5T engine package w/auto transmissionI purchased 10/2003 and after 23000 miles, it's still an enjoyable automobile. The 2.5T with sport package provides quick acceleration, lots of low end torque, great handling and excellent fuel mileage. My wish: Volvo should have offered factory options for XM radio, GPS nav, and integrated cell phone.
Pros: THE ENTIRE PACKAGE, AND GREEN TOO!
Cons: not a thing
Advice: test drive the others, price them and you will be driving VOLVOquiet,THE most comfortable seats, quiet and safe....not to mention regular gas and 26mpg average!!!
