Reliable and all around okay vehicle

The Volvo wagon's cargo space through the years, has gotten smaller due to styling. One of the selling points was having the ability to load larger items instead of borrowing a van. The front interior space is not as roomy as in the past either. Volvos used to have a distinctive look. Now they look like every other vehicle on the road.

4.7

Very comfortable, easy driving, practical vehicle

As usual, Volvo excels in interior comfort and design. Performance with the E-Drive T5 2.0 liter engine is more than adequate for highway driving and passing. Purchased as a used car, technology is not at 2021 levels, but it all works very well and certainly all we need. Super comfortable and practical for road trips.

5.0

great all around vehicle

this car has exceeded all my expectations. only reason for selling is I have to many vehicles and would not be able to register it in Mexico where I plan to relocate as branded as a luxury vehicle and fees very high
