Just took delivery of my new 2005 XC70. A trade from a 2002 XC70. Volvo has cut some corners which is very disconcerting. The under floor storage has been replaced with insulation (and not very well installed) The seat pockets are smaller. The handy in-dash cup holder has been replaced by a useless nook. The center console has lost a lot of its usefulness and been replace by useless cup holders. In short poor quality creep has set in, a trait learned apparently from Ford. unt. Additionally, the poor quality Perilli tires are still there.
