I've owned a XC-70 Ocean Race for six
months. This is one fantastic car. It
is extremely comfortable for long-
distance travel. We took a 4k mile
trip this summer with two adults, two
children and a labrador retreiver. Up
and down mountains on pavement and
dirt, the Volvo never faultered. It is
not quite as practical as the minivan
we owned previously, but it sure is
quieter, more comfortable, and much
more enjoyable to drive.
Comfortable seats. Excellent AWD
system. Wonderfully strong brakes.
Difficult for backseat passengers to
see around front headrests. Lid for
refrigerator box is poorly designed.
Self-levelling system or headlamp
adjusters would be a wonderful option
when traveling with loads.
