Same guy who let me drive his Cube(!!!) A4 3.0 Avant, and Forester XT (all manual). But this time he’s shifting into “D” for “daaaaaaaaad.”

It’s a red 2005 with only 49,000 miles o_O It’s got the Turbo-5!

Things I liked: [inhales]... Visibility, comfort, handling better than you’d think, the turbo when it kicks in (yo), the utilitarian design, the spaciousness, the look, and so on.

Things I didn’t like: No complaints, really. It’s a sweet car. Would definitely consider giving Volvo a better shake next time I browse for a car. With extensive research so I don’t get cornholed by some of the scarier models, of course.
