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

Review

1. The 235 hp engine is high on torque but low on kick. Acceleration comes with pretty noticable noise that is at least two notches louder on the car radio scale (i.e. you have to tune the radio louder by at least that much to hear the same volume) 2. NOTE THIS: in a stop-and-go situation (e.g. congested highway), you may feel not-infrequent jerking. It is as if the auto transmission doesn't know which gear to engage. This is particularly so if you just let go the brake or tap on the gas slightly.

Best Features

Rain senser, keyless entry, wagon, AWD

Worst Features

Include more in the standard package. The base model is unbecoming Volvo. Improve engine performance: either increase output or improve fuel economy. Now it is below-par on both.
