2010 Volvo XC60 T6 AWD: Perfect 99.9% of the Time
March 15, 2010
The supermarket. The drugstore. The ATM. It took the kids to a birthday party. It took the kids and the dog to the dog park. It made a secret late night run to Toy R Us. It took the family to dinner, the kids for haircuts and hauled home a new carbon monoxide detector from The Home Depot.
This weekend I used our long-term 2010 Volvo XC60 as it was intended to be used 99.9% of the time; as the quintessential family-mobile. I didn't drive it like a sportscar. I didn't take it into the mountains for any twisty road adventures. I didn't slap its shifter into "Manual". I never even folded its rear seats.
Fact is, I drove it over 150 miles, yet it was never more than 10 miles from my driveway. Short trips. Lots of them. Each one with a purpose.
I have no complaints.
This sport ute is comfortable, entertaining, spacious, easy to park, plenty powerful and it never feels cheap or uninteresting. Perfect. I think I'll sign it out again next weekend.
