It is a car with minimal maintenance costs which makes it cost effective to own.
This is our 2nd volvo sedan which we bought because we were very satisfied with the performance of our 1st. It has had minimal maintenance costs and is a safe car. The only thing I would change is to get the car version with the heated seats next time. WOuld also like if there was the ability to get this car off the lot as a standard transmission without the cost of special ordering that feature.
