Well, it's certainly a family car. Not very speedy at all, especially for the base model. It gets 22mpg city and 29hwy...with a manual. It's not a heavy car, especially for its class. It only holds 18.5gallons in the tank.

I think you could probably do better for that price. Honestly it seems like you're paying 30k (base price) for not a lot.

I'll suggest more tomorrow cause it's late here.

By the way, I got all that off of www.volvocars.com. Next time try googling!

You might want to check out Carsurvey.org. See what people who owned the car have to say about it.
