We've had our XC70 a year-plus. Had a V70 before it. We love it! Car has understated luxury. Feels like it's build like a frickin' tank, as I'm sure it is. Turbo engine does well. Not what you'd call nimble for around-town driving, but fantastic seats and big-car driving dynamics make it an awesome road-trip car. Excellent stereo.
Car looks classy, inside and out.
We owned an SUV in the past -- and hated it. Hated the high, tippy feel, tight squeeze in parking spaces, bad mileage. The Volvo solved all that. We recently bought a 2014 Highlander for 7-seater carpool purposes, and while it's nice enough it's not as all-around great as the Volvo. Toyota's only advantage: 2 more seats.
-- Solid, safe feel.
-- Incredibly comfortable seats.
-- Pretty good gas mileage (20 city, 27 highway).
-- Smooth power.
-- Smooth ride.
-- Wonderfully quiet cabin.
-- Excellent stereo with good soundstage/presence.
-- Good looks, inside and out.
-- Good cargo space.
-- Parking sensors are excellent. I can park this thing anywhere.
-- So far, it has been reliable.
-- The moonroof, when open, is noisier than our other cars. Better deflector, maybe?
-- Rear-seat legroom could be better.
-- The seat memory seems easily confused about which seat position for which user/fob. It's always giving me my wife's settings.
-- Radio/climate/Bluetooth controls are a little confusing.
-- I wish it had stop-start technology for better mileage. All cars should have this. All of them.
-- Overall the car needs much more cabin storage. Some of the places (behind the radio center stack, under the rear cargo area) don't amount to much.
