"This is our second Volvo and we love this car. We have owned this one for about a year. Our gas mileage averages 29.9 around town and 32.8 on the highway which is much better than rated. The interior is small and cozy and the trunk has plenty of room. Fold down rear seats that open the trunk into to cabin are a great feature for carrying oversize items or accessing items in the trunk while traveling."

"I bought my Volvo used with 60,000 miles on it and have since put on an additional 50,000. My car runs great! Absolutely no problems with it mechanically in fact I just took a road trip with it from Texas all the way to West Virginia. Great quality for your money. I will definitely be a Volvo buyer for life. I gave it 4 stars for performance because like I read in previous reviews, the acceleration could be a little faster :)."

"I had a large deer hit this car. 15K in damage, works just fine!! I had a Toyota Corolla before the Volvo - if I was driving the Corolla, given the size of the deer, I would not be writing this. You can't go wrong with it. I have not had a problem since, I did not have a problem before, and I walked away."

"First off I am a hugh chevy fan. This is the first car I have ever owned that wasnt a chevy. Wow I am impressed. super smooth handling, nice power. GREAT gas MPG. Got this as a gift for my wife she fell in love with it. I have had sevral back operations so it is hard to find a car or truck I can sit in for more than 15 miles till now. I drove it for over 200 miles and didnt have to stop once cause of my back and when we got home I didnt hurt. on the highway it is smooth but a little road noise. In town drop it in the manual shift mode and wow handles like a sports car like bmw m3 or better. will owe this car a long time and will buy another."
