Review

This has been one of my most dependable, trouble free, good-looking cars I have ever owned. I did not drive new Volvo when selecting a new car recently as I was not impressed with the most recent changes.

Review

This was my second Volvo. Ten years old and has been a fantastic car. Reliable. Great on gas. Comfortable to drive. The only downside is that the backseat got to be too small for road trips with all 4 of us in the car (8-10 hour trips a couple times a year) as the kids grew to 5'10 and 5'11. When they were younger (and shorter) it was fantastic. Overall it's been a great car!

Review

I realized the other day that my car was 10 years old, and I decided that I should let people know what a wonderful vehicle it's been. I've had nothing done to her except regular maintenance and tire replacement.

Review

Purchased pre-owned to replace XC90 which died. Low mileage example, super clean. Had to have the extra room afforded, but just couldn't handle the minor issues over the two months of ownership. Drove 6000 miles in those two months with dash and dash VIN rattle. Incredibly rough ride for a "luxury" wagon. Traded to a 4Runner and it has a smoother ride. After only two months simply had to give up and eat the depreciation. I avg 35,000 miles/yr.


Best Features

Gas mileage was exceptional, averaged 24/25 with majority of highway at 80.


Worst Features

Ride comfort was horrible. Audio nuances, which I was accustomed to in my XC90 were even worse in the V70. No legroom in back seat.
