Great Looking Family Wagon — Back seats have boosters built in. Great feature for a family wagon. Wife gets complements on how great the car looks for a wagon. It is all black with dark but legal tint. Drives great on road trips, but had to go with individual entertainment options (see cons)

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Black wagon looks awesome.

Cons: Driver window doesn't close every time when using auto-up.  The way headrests are mounted doesn't allow for mounting dvd screens.  They are part of what makes Volvo among the safest, so in the end its ok.

Professional Style — Very high quality materials and workmanship throughout - low noise, vibration and harshness. Responsive engine and vehicle dynamics without the "boy-racer" look. Seat height is perfect - no climb up as in typical SUV. If you are insecure and your ego demands a high perch to look down on others, then by all means buy a huge "look at me" vehicle. Before I bought my Volvo I drove a used V70 that had been driven in Alaska for two years and then driven to Ohio - after many cold miles over very rough roads this car was still tight and looked great, and I was sold. Mine still feels new after 60k miles over Ohio's rough roads - enough said.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great "adult look" styling that does not appeal to the 'bling' culture. I appreciate the 'less is more' style that sets this car apart from the Lexus/Mercedes/Caddy "hip" look.

Cons: Was concerned that the Ford sale of Volvo would diminish the brand, but the new Chinese owners have improved the dealerships in Ohio.

Don't Even Think About Running Into Me Deer. — I love that I don't need a key to open, lock, or start my car. I love the moon roof and blasting the radio on the highway. I love not having to hear all kinds of rattles and other noises that made me feel like the car was falling apart. I love how quiet this car is to drive.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: I love my new car.

Cons: It's mine and not yours.
