A practical and zippy commuter
Vehicle is very fun to drive. It is cramped however, but you can still fit a great deal of stuff in it for trips of up to two people, more and it's uncomfortable. Gas mileage isn't great, but it's decent. The car has very few features, except for heated seats and aux, but I find myself not needing more. The seats are supremely comfortable. I hear positive things about Volvo reliability, however in my case there was a massive defect in the harmonic balancer at 70,000 miles that required a long and expensive engine rebuild. The car is also difficult to work on.
