This is my fourth XC70 -- I current;y own one in the US and lease another in Europe. I have previously owned a 1999 (which had problems) and a 2001 XC70 which I picked up in Sweden on Volvo's Tourist program. Contrary to the other review here, I am delighted with my new XC70. It is a solid comfortable ride. I did change the tires from the Continentals it came with to Bridgestones. It's a great addition to the lineup.. I do wish it had the Four C suspension. I got misled by the dealer about that.
I like the Four C suspension on the XC70 I lease in Europe. I also like its 2.6D diesel engine as it gets about 37 mpg. This car handles well and is very comfortable on long trips.
