"Love the car, electronics are a disappointment."4.0 starson by cczaphod2
Pros: Great handling, snappy acceleration, room for my family of five and a couple of guests. Overall, very nice car.
Cons: I purchased the 100K mile warranty, so the Transmission at 60K miles or so was covered. Other than that, and a recall or two, I've been pleased with the mechanics of the car.
Summary: I like the car, it's a nice SUV. I traded in a Mercedes M-Class SUV on it and have not really missed the Mercedes much. The Volvo interior is nice, the Navigation package is another plus. I like the third row of seats and how flat they go when they're not deployed. My only gripe is the electronics package. I can't add Sirius or hook up my iPod -- seems odd in a 2005 model year car.
