Great SUV

I love this car! So reliable, easy to own. Great space, looks good. Built like a tank, but drives smooth - even had a button buck hit and bounce off - no damage at all. Highly recommend.


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.
