    My car

    Not the best looking car with the roof down but hold down the roof switch for 20 seconds and it's transformed into the best looking true 4 seat convertible on the road. The ride is soft if you're looking to add a few points to your licience but for pure cruising it more than suitable.

    Comfort is superb in front with plenty of space in the back. The controls are well laid out although cruise control on the steering wheel would make life easier also add in heated seats for those cold sunny days when you want the roof down. All the switches have the feel of quality about them. The sound system is very good and the wind doesn't disturb your enjoyment.

    The boot opening is small but there is a fair amount of space for golf clubs and kit bags. I love owning and driving this car, it puts a smile on my face when I leave the house in the morning and see it sitting on my drive.

    The dealership were excellent and my local volvo garage are very helpful, understanding and truthful in all the dealing I've had with them.

    If you want to drive your car fast and wizz around the A roads of the UK, this is not the car for you but if you want cruise around and have people stare at you and think "that's a great looking car" this is the car for you.

    This car is true value for money, you don't have to fork out for lots of extras, you get the goodies included, unlike some German cars, where you pay a hefty price for the badge also.
