Overall -- I thought I was getting a sporty, luxurious convertible. After 4000 miles, it's just a reliable 4-seater hardtop convertible. Sporty? The car is SO heavy & the suspension is like my old man's `92 Buick Park Avenue. Acceleration? Fairly responsive. Cornering? Not tight at all, especially with the weight you're carrying. Steering? Too loose. Appearance? It looks sporty for a Volvo, but come on, consider your baseline. Luxury? Nice overall amenities, but there?s a lot of room for improvement (see comments below). Overall, I think I should have waited for BMW's version which will debut in the spring.
What I like -- Convertible hard top; DYNAUDIO option is just AWESOME, like front row seats at a Van Halen concert; simple, elegant, and navigable mid-console panel; minimal blind spots; responsive acceleration; passenger memory seats and mirrors
What I dislike -- Subpar dashboard for the priceband - mint green font?!; too much wind in rear seats with top down (I bought this car to take my family around with the top down - the first ride was a failure due to the excessive wind); seat leather doesn't breathe/ventilate well, leading to discomfort during extended rides; overly sensitive CD player- shuts down speaker system at high frequencies that are manageable for other car CD players; the center arm rest is anemic at best and can't be shared with the front passenger; for the price, this CONVERTIBLE doesn't even have a case for your sunglasses; storage compartments on the doors are awkwardly constructed and difficult to access, especially with the doors closed.
