Purchased our XC60 a month ago, and it's been great. Driving is incredible, and comfort level is awesome. I may have to buy another Volvo because my wife doesn't give me permission to drive this one much. Great job Volvo!
Personal Car Communicator, BLIS, and Xenon headlamps were a great investment.
Gas mileage is my only complaint. Hoping for the diesel or plug-in hybrid if possible.
Car (AWD 3.2L) rides extremely smoothly and feels great in city and highway driving. Even though Volvo is known for making comfortable cars, this model has probably best combination of suspension, tires and seats. It is extremely comfortable and quiet. Base engine has enough power and it is fun to drive in snow and in mountains. Base sound system and blue tooth are excellent. We did not get model with factory- installed navigation system but any aftermarket system can be nicely mounted on dash. We enjoy this car very much after owning it for 6 months (8 k miles)and would recommend it. It has nicer exterior lines than any other Volvo and is very comfortable for whole family.
comfortable seats, panoramic skylight, blue tooth, stereo sound, power gate opener
Hybrid version of this model would be very attractive. We get about 18 mpg in city and 24 mpg on hwy.
Six trips to repair BLIS - the last to have new software downloaded and was told it was fixed. It was on in my driveway...it was on in an empty parking lot while I was in Park. Still not fixed. Just had the rack and pinion steering replaced. Did I mention the car has less than 10,000 miles on it, is 4 months old and I bought it with 4500 dealer miles on it? Volvo just offered me a new replacement vehicle, but I want out completely and have lemon law arbitration in about a week. The vehicle is a bust and so is the dealership.
I was in a automobile accident and got a settlement that allowed me to get anything I wanted, For the first and last time in my life,price really wasn't an obstacle. I wanted a comfortable vehicle that had easy entry and exit and one that I felt safe in . The Mercedes E-class was "underwhelming",not nearly worth the money (I had owned a 1962 220 SB that felt like it was carved from a ingot of iron,new one, no way).The Audi Q5 was real nice,but the MMI controls and requirement for high test gas were a turn off.Cadillac,Lincoln,Lexus(salesman wouldn't even come over),Ditto for Infiniti. Plus they just didn't feel right.Test drove the XC60 and -wow. I had found my car.
The feeling of solidity is very impressive. I needed the backup camera from the accident and really like it. I am on my feet all day ,but when I sit in the Volvo seats ,it's just-AAHH.Excellent car for long trips .Didn't think I would but love the adaptive cruise control and rain sensitive wipers,
I'd trade now for a diesel. My previous car was a 96 VW Passat.You get real used to 45 mpg in the city,but my T6 gets around 20-22MPG city-26-27 highway.I just smile now when I drive my car. 2 hour drive are nothing in this.
No problems so far. Very comfortable to drive. Very smooth handling on my daily work commutes. Only complaint would be the gas mileage, currently around 18mpg, but still feels as if I am constantly refilling tank.
Comfortable seating both front and back. Great storage space in back.
Needs to improve gas mileage. Maybe hybrid would help?
