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

Review

We've had Volvo sedans before, put this is our first wagon. It's a tank. I can't imagine a sturdier, more substantial vehicle. It's outstanding in rain and you're 100% confident in matters of traction and handling all the time. Amazingly comfortable overall. My issues? A perpetual rattle in the cargo area. Had it serviced, but the fix lasted only one day. Going back in again soon. Mileage? I had to shut off the display so I wouldn't cry- -long stretches on local roads at 6MPG. I probably average 16MPG overall. Would I recommend it? Yes, but think hard if you're mostly puttering around town because of the mileage.

Favorite Features

Parking assist, outstanding radio, highly intuitive controls

Suggested Improvements

Mileage! Tap the gas pedal from a standing stop and it's like a rocket launch. I's trade some power for MPGs.
