Best of all the ex quit chrashing into shit.
you're one of the few people I have heard say positive things out of post 2004 Volvos. My wife had one (brand new in 2006). less than 10,000 miles and it went through two rear wheel bearings and was an overweight underpowered (t5) S-box IMO!!!!
the only thing I will say about the little piglet was that it did incorporate a lot of clever design features (like minivans) like storage dividers, built-in booster seats for kids and other smart features.
Glad you had a good experience though.
