Just returned from a 3000 mile road trip. Odometer just rolled over 30,000 as we returned. Last leg of trip, 1400 miles, got 31.4 mpg with average speed of 65 mph. Best ever. It was comfortable, responsive, easy to drive at up to the 90 mph we cruised on some Utah & Idaho roads where posted speed limit was 80. High winds didn't bother it. Neither did some sharp mountainous turns. Good job, Volvo! MUCH more responsive and comfortable than our 1999 XC-70.
Good road handling in turns. Like the transmission for braking. Works well steep terrain.
