RE: Volvo vs Benz
I agree. The Volvo is definitely quicker off the line, and turns much more nimbly than the Mercedes. However, when the Mercedes gets churning at around 3-5,000 RPM is is quicker than the Volvo, and it probably rides better too. It feels really solid. The 960 has 105,000 miles, and we are actually contemplating selling it even though it has had perfect maintenance. You're right, two completely different feels though, both nice...Euro quality, I guess.
