After four years and 68500 miles my XC70 is holding up well. Still drives like a new car and enjoy it every day. Interior and exterior build quality is great. It has never broken down and the only repair was a hole in the radiator for road debris. It is always loaded with surf boards and still has room for three people. Very comfortable seats and outstanding visibility. A great balance of snow, mild off road and street performance. Around town MPG 18 and highway 23.
Exterior styling, rounded driving performance, interior room and ergonomics. I like that I don't see others on the road everyday. This car has been very reliable.
Only one minor suggestion. Quiet blinkers. They are not as loud as some, but BMW's are much quieter and less annoying.
