What was the problem with yours/family's? I've done a lot of research and reviews and while every cars gonna have some problems and bad reviews, the majority were excellent and said that this particular Volvo was very well made. And 30mpg highway is pretty good to me.
I know the Forester is extremely reliable, but the XT's seem to be uncommon around Jersey and I'm not sure I want a wagon anymore.
