Just load it up and it's great for impulsive road trips!
It is an older model Volvo wagon, but I have already put on 150, 000 miles. Minor things can be problematic, but it is very reliable, comfortable, and I love to take it on road trips because it can hold so many things in the back of the wagon. Seats fold down flat, not slanted. It is easy for me to load in as I am a short person. Very comfortable smooth ride and holds the road nicely. The heater/ac is very easy to regulate without pushing a lot of buttons. Just set the thermostat to the temperature you enjoy. Even has dual thermostats.
