It’s a really nice car. If I were buying new today, there’s no doubt I’d be getting one. I’m just glad we’re finally starting to see them on the streets here in Seattle.

Unfortunetly, this car and the S80 are just overlooked.<br>A modest rise in sales isn't the best news in the world,<br>but its a start and hopefully the car has a future.<p>The C30 is still my favorite modern Volvo, it looks great<br>from every angle...very few cars do that.<br>It does most things very well, it is sporting enough, and<br>if you order it through OSD it delivers an experience no other<br>car can do at that price tag

I will get one if it offers AWD as you know how last winter was in Seattle.

What strikes my eye about that list is that there's three Hyundais in the top ten and four in the top fifteen, and I wonder why.

Two Land Rovers on the list...wow. I know that they've improved, and that the LR2 is pretty much a billion times better than the Freelander but wow. I'm almost shocked they made the list!
