I love my volvo. I feel so safe
driving it. I have two small children
and they love our car two. When they
have friends stay over we have the
third row seating so extra seating
room. It is great.
The only thing I do not like about the
car is the soccer mom look of the
exterior. I wish the bumper was not
wrapped in the plastic look either
DVD we had added to the car. Also the
child seats. I love that they are in
the car so all I do when an adult rides
in the back is lift the release and it
is a normal seat again.
Different head rests so that DVD
screans can be installed in the head
rest. Air conditioning to the third
row seating. With an on and off switch.
This is one incredible vehicle. Indiana
to British Columbia via the Northwest
and back through the Southwest; to
Florida via North Carolina's Outer
Banks and back; then round trip to
Canada's Martitme Provinces and all
this within 14 months; not a single
problem 12,000 foot mountains and 118
degree deserts did not budge the engine
heat indicator off of normal; gets 29.4
mpg @ 65 mph; superb seats; the turbo 5
more than matches any V8 ever owned
(including the 60's powerhouses); it's
like driving a Bradley Fighting Vehicle
with agility and comfort.
Seat comfort, pep and versatility.
More intuitive radio controls; 1/2 inch
more space between the gas and brake
pedals; door lock button at the rear
like Explorer; quicker operating
electronic door locks like Mercedes.
This is the third Volvo that we have
owned and is by far the favorite of all
three. I don't think I will ever buy
anything else but a Volvo, if for
nothing else the safety features. I
drive a very crazy, interstate highway
everyday and it's nice to know that
should I be involved in a serious
accident, there is a high probability
that I will survive it.
Although not a "luxury car" there are
enough really nice features on the
V70XC to make it comfortable and a
dream to drive.
I average around 22 mpg and use ONLY 93
octane fuel. So far, we have
experienced absolutley no problems with
this car and couldn't be happier with
our purchase. 5 stars for Volvo!
I love the whole car, what more can I
say? But I guess the one feature I love
the most would have to be the heated
seats on a cold winter morning!
