Wipers are a saftey hazard
By Mary L. on


2010 Volvo XC60 T6 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6A)


The vehicle handles well in all types of weather. However, side mirror defrosters would be a great addition since they are standard on other vehicles. Besides the poor navigation system and poor night time back up camera visibility, my main complaint is the poor design for the windshield wipers. For a such a safety conscious company, Volvo blew it in this area. These are a safety hazard. Snow & ice build up quickly despite a defrost temp of 85 degrees, requiring frequent stops in inclement weather and traffic to clear! The large swath not covered by the wipers in upper right windshield, is also a safety hazard due to the poor visibility this creates.

Best Features

BLIS and unleaded regular gas use are major plusses!! The car is comfortable and fun to drive...just not while it is snowing!!

Worst Features

Windshield wipers and a more state of the art and user friendly Navigation system.
