Larry Z from Western Pennsylvania writes:

“If you can get past the “Well it’s safe but…” statements from people that you tell you bought a Volvo, you will find an extremely comfortable, excellent-handling, well-appointed – frankly, near perfect, vehicle. If I was to nitpick, I’d say not having high-intensity-discharge headlights as standard and having light-colored carpet (I have the ivory interior) would be my only complaints. Visibility is good, power is good, road hugging is great and with plenty of room, a feeling of, yes, safety, surrounds you when you are inside. I guess you just have to drive one for a distance to really appreciate what you’ve got.”
