2012 Volvo XC60 3.2 I6
Great car, extremely comfortable and reliable so far.
Has the base US engine, but doesn't feel slow; won't win any drag races though.
Excellent value compared to competitors: looked mostly at the Audi Q5 and Lexus RX; neither offered the tech the Volvo has, and both cost more.
Ordered European Delivery and the experience was great: ordered a special interior color and had a great trip, not to mention the fact that we saved money too.
Would definitely recommend this car to anyone looking for a small luxury SUV.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Please be aware with the following defect, especially for 2010 models (perhaps also for later models):

Hardly a big deal, a windscreen seal failing. I assume the above poster works for the company that is dealing with them. At least Volvo is honoring any repair in the warranty period. I guess we could all buy a Lexus (at several thousand more) and just hope the gearbox doesn't break.
I'm being sarcastic - the XC60 is a fantastic vehicle and I would fully recommend one. No manufacturer makes a perfect car, but if a failed windscreen seal (which Volvo doesn't make themselves) is as bad as it gets, then I can live with that :-)

There is this owner who had the Geartronic transmission fail on a 2013 XC60 at 75000 miles. Hopefully an isolated incident.
