Comfort, Style and Build - I love it!
Stereo crackled when the heated rear screen was switched on - new rear screen fitted under warranty.
Intermittent creak from the rear, unable to trace at the minute, checks show nothings wrong, could be the exhaust..
Fantastic comfort, I drive it for hours on end and the seats are amazing!
The ride can become a little rough on bad surfaces, but it generally glides around in a softish, relaxing way!
Always gets good comments, my friends can't believe how nice modern Volvo's are!
Performance is great, the surge from the turbo is addictive! It just keeps on accelerating! May get it chipped, I've driven the 185 model and it did feel that little bit quicker..
It does sound a bit to 'dieselly' sometimes which can be annoying, but minor compared to the plus point of 35mpg around town with spirited driving!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
