Awesome toy!


The cruise control was difficult to engage.

General Comments:

This car is awesome! This Volvo is the fastest car I have ever had.. I had a BMW 528 that was a fast car, but the Volvo is even faster.. The BMW is a nightmare in terms of maintenance, and has a known problem with the cooling trio (radiator / water pump / expansion tank).

The Volvo is also extremely comfortable if you are in the front seats.. Space in the back is very restricted, although it has a large trunk..

Also, do not buy this car if you intend to run on in rough roads. The car is low, and the suspension suffers a lot on rough roads..

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
