Pros: "A sports car with cargo space"

Cons: "Large turning radius. Low front cowling scrapes."

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

"Ist repair was $600 after 9 years, the alarm system siren needed replacement. The 6 speed stick and the brakes are just as good as the day we took delivery at the factory in February 2005. Have not changed the spark plugs yet. Great car although have never driven it over 135 mph, it is glued to the road and stops quickly. The body is tight, but the seats are showing a little ware."

Pros: "Goes in any type of snow and ice."

"Bought the 2002 Volvo Cross Country, AWD new and have loved this car. Cleans up beautifully. Drives like a charm, ride is smooth and very comfortable. Goes in any type of snow or ice with no problem at all. My co-workers call me to pick them up when it snows! I put a hitch on this car and it has pulled a small camper and a small boat with no problem. This car will probably still be going at 300000 miles!!"

Cons: "Cup holders and center console could be improved"

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

"Love this car! I fell in love with it the first time I drove it 12 years ago. The handling and power is awesome. Great for snow and ice. I like the auto fan while-the-car-is-sitting-in-a-hot-parking-lot feature. It has accommodated everything I have needed to haul. The height is perfect for a not very tall person."

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

"This is easily the best car I've ever owned. The instrumentation isn't fancy and it rides close to the ground (you feel every bump). But it's built like a tank and it's just as comfortable at the lumber yard as the opera. One bad characteristic: It has a terrible turning radius. But I can deal with that, because it's completely maintenance free. Love my Volvo!"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 6

"Very reliable car - had for 10 years but the last two years, things began to wear out costing me thousands of dollars - should have traded it in at the 8 year point. One bad thing about this model volvo is the air bags require checking and/or servicing at around 100,000 miles and the volvo dealers charge an arm and a leg just to do the checks - a real rip off in my mind and pocket book!!"
