XC is a big improvement over SUV
By ericj on


2001 Volvo V70 XC AWD 4dr Wagon (2.4L 5cyl Turbo 5A)


After 2 small SUV's I bought the XC. With the interior capacity, roof rack with cross rails and roof storage container, I can carry more than when I had an SUV. The ride is much smoother and the power of the turbo helps getting on the highway. I get about 18mpg around town and 28mpg on the highway. I have kept up with maintenance and only had a problem with a leaky angle drive. I have to drive farther for work, so I am putting more highway mileage on it. Very comfortable to drive long distance.

Best Features

Driving visibility, ride, storage capacity, 2-stage heated seats, memory seat/ mirror positions

Worst Features

Less expensive additional/ replacement keys, rear seat legroom with front seats back, greatly improved owner light replacement
