Volvo used to have their own design direction. Me too nowadays, although much legistlation, packaging and economics, plus computer design, is reponsible for these bland designs.

I like it, but also like a few volvo's now. Styling has improved in the last few years. Not sure about what reliability is like these days? Read a few owner issues on the current shape XC90 the other day. I know no matter what we drive it could have issues but Volvo seemed to always be one of the most dependable cars
