Bought the 2004 XC to replace my 1977 245
Volvo. Absolutely NO complaints about fit/
finish, engine power, transmission (Auto/
Gearttronic). It has the normal turbo lag from
a start which makes it a little hard to get a
really smooth start. The Automatic Climate
Control is great! Power roof switch takes
some getting use to. Folding down the rear
seats is almost too easy. Got it for $2250
under invoice with excellent financing.
It's a Volvo. Carlsen Volvo in Palo Alto CA
have to be THE place to make your purchase
The stock tires are less than perfect, they tend
to follow the rain grooves in the road. A little
more room for the drivers foot above the
brake peddle, (size 11's).
