The jury says do not buy this model.
January 24, 2018
The car gets good mileage as long as eco is used but have not seen 37 to date, nice seats and has extra leg room verses other models. It drives okay and maintains speed well once it shifts through gears. But it is slow to shift. It cannot support a roof rack due to the additional length and does not have a spare. Also no settings for engine temp. Autostart /stop is not smooth and grinds at times...start at slight incline or when quick moving between pedals, warrenty now but concerned for impacts to tranny long term, the car feels cheaper than former volvos...did not notice until driving it more, roof interior fabric is thin, it is noisy around doors, windows and windsheild, the nice sound system is wasted as the car cannot support it even at low volumes and with equaliser and speaker adjustments, electronics/settings are not as navigational or straight forward as they could be, importantly for winter climates the heat air flow is almost nonexistint when using the floor setting- did volvo forget to insulate or route the duct vents in a new configuration? The upper windsheild setting stays on with more flow than other settings when not selected. We expected more and better quality for a newer car from volvo. Bring back the 5-cylinder, the interior and ride quality, please.
