GERMAN GONE SWEDE

2004 Volvo XC70 AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)
Review
We've been looking for a good-looking SUVs but without the unnecessary bulk of most major SUVs. We traded one of our cars (AUDI A4 Quattro) for this new XC70 Volvo. We also considered the Lexus R330 and Volvo XC90. We found these latter two SUVs to be too tall/high for our "rescued" South Russian Sheepdog to jump in and out of the vehicle. We chose the XC70 because he is able to recline comfortably while in the car. The XC70's safety features also made us choose it over the Lexus R330. We would have chosen the XC90 but besides the "height" situation, we also found it a little "too feminine" looking :) Although I've seen quite a few women driving the XC70 here in the LA area.
Favorite Features
SAFETY, EXTERIOR FINISH, COMFORT, INTERIOR SPACE, AND IT'S REMARKABLE EASE OF DRIVE DESPITE OF IT'S SIZE---I actually prefer the driving quality on our new Volvo XC70 over our AUDI A4 quattro.
Suggested Improvements
FUEL ECONOMY, Automatic locking door, ease of use of the entertainment/music controls/functions, parking voice/warning assistance especially when parallel parking-should be a standard feature considering the length of this vehicle
