Pros

incredibly flexible interior space with folding seats, integrated booster and lots of cargo room. The twin turbo V6 has lots of grunt and lends security. Better than average handling for its class and age.

Cons

Cost to own is high. New tires required every 20,000 miles. Unreliable. Volvo dealers are not on par with other luxury brands.

Safety, Flexibility And Good Looks At The Expense Of Reliability And High Maintenance Costs — I love the flexible interior space, safety and good looks. But this car has cost me dearly in a high amount of fixes. If you value looks, safety and flexibility over reliability and like spending time at the Volvo dealership, this is the car for you!

It is a Volvo - What if Toyota made cars like this

Great Choice If A Bus Is Out Of The Question — Comfortable, spacy, luxurious. Maximum equipment. Safe, like a tractor when you want to, like a limousine when you want to. Sky roof, gps, leather seats, electric seats, two sets of foldable rows of seats. I hope this car never dies

Pros

Lots of air bags if they should ever bee needed and a solid body. I like the looks/stance of the vehicle.

Cons

Transmission and suspension/steering are horrible. It constantly requires attention/repairs and not even 100K miles

Problem Child — I had a feeling that the decision to purchase would be regretted... two tranny replacements in under 3 years and countless other issues, I am glad to be trading this one in! I've lost WAY too much money on this car. My worst vehicle purchase ever.

Pros

practicality

Cons

running costs

Does What Is Says On The Box — Does what it says on the box. Transports 7 people in relative comfort and safety, expensive to run if you don't have a diesel and chews through tyres. But it is a very well designed car not really a 4x4 but a jacked up estate care
