This is one classy car!
2007 Volvo V70
I just love this car. It's my first Volvo, purchased pre-owned with 110K miles. Now has 145K. Solid heavy car. Hugs the road like a leech. Peppy 2.5L turbo. More than enough acceleration for me even with a full load. Gas mileage is adequate around town (approx 21), very good highway mileage. Interior fittings are high quality. The leather is thick and supple. So far she has been … very reliable. The front passenger window came off it's track, and the dealer had to replace part of the mechanism inside the door. It was partially covered by an extended warranty. The only other issue I have had is with the radio (HU650 standard factory radio) where the AM band stopped working. Bought a used unit off ebay and it works great. I would definitely buy another one. In fact after having now owned this car for almost 2 years, my wife wants an XC90 for herself. Like other posters mentioned, the turning circle is not good. U Turns can be tricky. And Volvo is not made for DIY. Even changing certain bulbs are unnecessarily difficult June 2020: She now has 180K miles. She is as solid as ever. During the past year, had the front-end serviced (ball joints, sway bars etc) also had the PCV system serviced -- that was a pretty time-consuming job. Services are done by a small independent shop that only services Volvos. The AC needs recharging. But the smoothness of the engine and it's effortless acceleration belies the fact that this car is 13 years old and is pushing 200K miles!
