Pros: "Comfortable, powerful, handles snow well, safe"

Cons: "Turn radius, expensive, parts tend to wear out"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"Honestly, this car is expensive, prone to issues, and somewhat difficult to drive at times. Parts seem to break all the time, and they are always ridiculously expensive to fix (like any European vehicle). The turn radius on this thing is horrendous (even after replacing the tie rods). However, I don't think I have ever been in a more comfortable vehicle, and the engine is amazing. The turbo really adds something extra. I feel really safe in this car, and it handles snow like a champion. All in all, I love this car, and I will really miss it when it finally bites the dust (although, my wallet will be better off)."

Pros: "Comfort, Safety, Fridge, Entertainment"

Cons: "Trunk space, value loss, upkeep costs"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 7

"The only complaint I have with the car is the limited trunk room due to the refrigerator. I broke my spine several times and this is one of the few vehicles I am comfortable in. With single cd in the dash and a ten disk CD player behind the wheel well in the trunk the premium sound system is pretty much unlimited. It has dual remote controls, front and back for the stereo, CD, CD changer, scanning TV, DVD entertainment system selections and control. There is a locking table for your laptop that is locked to the table. There are only four seats due to the full length burl wood center console, but worked fine for me. Excellent acceleration from still to highway speeds with the twin turbos. This car has literally been from coast to coast, Miami,FL to Eureka, CA and Colorado cold to Texas heat. It is extremely comfortable and very safe. Maintenance and repairs at the dealer are expensive. The car does not hold its value as well as other vehicles in its original price range. But for something unique that you want to keep, this is a good candidate."

Cons: "Chinese car company now"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 1

"Original owner after 118000. 29 mpg highway. Very comfortable after long drives to Fl. Only had 1 repair (angle gear) early on and nothing since. A/C cools the car fast, heats up in the winter quickly, heated seats are the best I ever had. I was ready to buy another but too bad Volvo is now owned by the Chinese. I am very concerned about quality."

Pros: "appearance--great pickup--5 cylinder better than 6"

Cons: "transmission--cooling system--engine problems"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 3

"Transmission failed at 65K miles. Replaced radiator at 30K Replaced "mass air flow sensor" at 68K miles. People say you can drive this car for 200K miles. Not so! Car gets scheduled service at Volvo dealer. Great winter car. Transmission has W setting for snow--keeps you in third gear."
