Excellent choice. Best ever, actually.

Volvos are the BEST VALUE FOR THE MONEY, bar none. Cheap is expensive and expensive is cheap in the long run. Even if you buy used.

Most reliable car I've owned

This car met all of my needs. It is incredibly comfortable, and drives very smooth. This volvo model has the highest safety rating in its class.

5.0

Safe car

We have owned Volvo cars since 1988 and they have been the safest car around. We were T-boned and we all walked out with nothing more than a few scrapes on my arm from the broken window and a broken toe. Survived 2 different deer hitting our cars Survived a rear end collision with nothing more than a headache
