So, Matt got a promotion at work (YAY!), and with that came a company truck (YAY!), so we sold his truck (YAY!), and we're trading in my POS Explorer Sport (okay, it's really not that bad) for a new car. We've pretty much set our eyes on a Toyota Highlander, a Toyota 4Runner (2010s are out very soon and some dealerships may already have some inventory), or a Volvo XC60 (new this year - their interpretation of a crossover). I know Toyotas are great, reliable cars, and I've heard good things about Volvos but I really don't know too much about them. Any Volvo lovers out there? What can you tell me... the good, bad and ugly? For some reason, I have the impression that they cost more to fix. Any thoughts on any of the vehicles? I realize the Volvo and the 4Runner are quite different cars, but that's where we are at the moment.2010 Volvo XC60
I feel like this is not what the Highlander really looks like, but this is what is on the Toyota website.
