Drove an Outback Touring this morning. My biggest knock is the turbo lag. Pros are good visibility, comfy seats, like the cockpit (TWSS!) and the pricing.
Ugh, and you gotta go all of the way up to the touring model to get the non-cheesy roof rails.

I want to be able to mount t-slot accessories and you can't do that with the flimsy integrated crossbar that comes on lower trims.

Not positive if I shared this yet. This man’s enthusiasm, passion and commitment is one to be seriously revered.

ok, so drove the Polestar 2 around Manhattan.

Overall thought: it's great.

highs: it's a blast to drive. It's also easy to drive and everything makes total sense. Somebody in this thread noted that electric cars are just different in the way they drive, and this was the case. Since I already drive an XC90, I was able to see more of the tech than a total Volvo/Polestar noob since I knew where and what some of the bells and whistles were, and this car feels plenty advanced in the tech space without me thinking "wonder how long that takes to break". The motor braking took no time to get used to and it worked well. I can't comment on a Tesla interior, but this interior was on par with what I see from the R-Design trims on the standard Volvo cars, both in build quality and in design. In person it does look great too. Speed was very apparent and the steering feel was excellent when set to 'firm'. The car felt substantial, which it is, but the powertrain felt capable to handle the weight. Body did not roll around like a boat.

lows: must get the leather interior. The "vegan" offering just feels like crappy cloth and totally dilutes the feeling of the otherwise great interior.

It's a great car for $60K, the electric part is just adding to the argument. Plenty of space and utility, plus it'll pin you back with instant torque should you want to wake yourself up a bit.

My Grandfathers SN95 That he's had since 07 (i think). I took this at my dads shop today. He had it on the lift yesterday and it needs new exhaust hangers . Imagine a 80 year old tall Jamaican man with white dreads down his back and chinky eyes due to all the bud he smoked throughout his lifetime being the driver.

Spotted this lovely yesterday while shopping. Had to stop and admire it for a little while. The rear diffuser and stabilizers are a bit much and I’m not a huge proprietor of the color, but seeing a brand new one isn’t very common in my travels

Volvo. That drink you ordered from the standing up menu on the bar, can't remember it's name. But it was good.
