2008 Volvo XC70 3.2 4dr Wagon AWD (3.2L 6cyl 6A)

Review

This is my third Volvo. Previous to this car was an 02 XC70 and an 850 turbo. My experience with the 08 model is not something to write home about. The fuel economy of this car (avg 13.8L/100kms) is far less than the 2002 and the increase in HP does little to affect performance. Personally I prefer the older turbo model. I also like the center stack from the old model as it was slightly turned towards the driver. Other than cosmetic, there is very little about this car that is better than the previous model. The car is not as quiet nor as tight. I currently have 13K kms on this car and it has been back to the dealer five times for warranty repair.

Favorite Features

Seats. Ipod input. Interior space. AWD.

Suggested Improvements

More fuel efficient. More performance leaning towards Audi/BMW. Quieter interior. Turn stack towards the driver and dash back to the driver an inch or two. Add to standard features...e.g. 10 way pwr seats. Pwr adjustable steering setting, NAV, Bliss.
