Hey all. I just wanted to post that I traded in my IS300 for a Volvo S60 T5. It just has so much more room and comfort. I came to this decision after taking a 4 hour drive in the IS300 and my legs went numb, and the back went out. Being 6'3" and driving the IS is very tight. While the Volvo offers great power (similar or better acceleration) the key thing is the comfort. The IS is a much better handler, but the Volvo is still very sporty.
Just looking for opinions on my switch.

Not a fan of Volvo but they are nice cars. So how come you didn't consider the Acura TL Type S or the Audi A4? Both are larger on the interior and handle incredibly well.

I am 6'4 and have had my IS for 5 months and have no complaints about its size. My longest trip in it was only an hour and a half, so I don't really know the feeling of a very long drive in it.

I did not consider the Acura because I think it is ugly. Also the seats are not that comfortable. I personally have owned 2 Audis and had bad experiences in both. The Volvo just gives me the best of both worlds, comfort and performance.
