Mix Bag of Unknowns
By Kevin on


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


We bought this in April and I am very sensitive to transmission quirks . It hunts incessantly from gear to gear indecisively making me a bit uncomfortable. I never felt confident and the mpg is not near the perf we should get. . I kept getting the runaround from the dealer saying its an "adaptive" trans. and would smooth out after break in , but I know cars and was upset 4 months later- gas mileage under 20 I finally snapped sold it on craigslist saying we were moving . Yeah moving from one car to another . The Volvo was true to its FORD bones-poor-power to weight. We got an Audi A4 - Like night and day- some sap got the VOLVO- Volvos now I know what all the hupla is about- nothing!

Worst Features

Volvos are deceiving initially driving in the demo feeling solid and after a few 100 its like a lump of clay .Most owners seriously most won't admit buying one as it's too embarrassing to stomach
