Excellent reliability, fun to drive, good looking, wonderfully comfortable interior. I recommend it. Recently it was in for its 10K service and my Saab-Volvo dealer gave me a new Volvo S-70 loaner for the day. No comparison! The S-70 seemed "cheap" inside (but not on the window sticker) with more plastic, a less well thought-out design. I was not impressed. JPH
