Why would the T5 cost less to maintain?Thanks guys. The RD is definitely more fun to drive and handles better. It also comes with more....climate and media packages, plus xenon lights and sportier looks. The T5 has better gas mileage, is very comfortable., but comes only with climate package. I lean towards the RD because who would not. It's awesome. But, the T5 has better gas mileage and a longer warranty, and is probably less expensive to maintain. It's actually tough to decide. I appreciate the advice. This will be my first Volvo and I can't wait.
They're tires... Sell them or just use them... I got MXM4 and am quite happy with them.This one has contiprocontacts. Definitely summer tires. Yeah I might have to suck it up and get the R.
I also really like my T5 and haven't had any complaints other than sometimes wishing for the dynamic package. If you live in a Northern clmate though, the touring chassis and 17" wheels are probably right.I'd go for the T5. As a T5 driver, the only complaint for me is the build quality issues, slow transmission, and slightly softer than optimal suspension.
+1 ProContacts are All Season tires and ContiSportContact3 are the summer tires."Grand Touring All Season" according to their web site.
