I am a long time Volvo owner. Bjorn a 1973 164E, Leif a 1994 850 & Magnus a 2002 XC70, each one having its own virtues. I have owned this car for just three weeks now and I know I am a guy and I am supposed to like my car but I really like this XC70. I have driven my Father XC90 across country (US) and yes it is very nice, but I live in San Francisco, the closest I get to off-road is skiing in Tahoe. It is quite nimble. This engine is designed to compete on the German Autobahn. The 5 speed automatic transmission steers up the right amount of turbo boast to propel you from 60 to 90 mph faster than you can say C-H-P. With 39.8 of head room I fit. The rear mounted CD 10 pack is a must.
