Great car, lousy tire options and MPG
By gbs on


2005 Volvo XC70 AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)


I bought my XC70 as a certified used car. I had previously owned an Audi A6 wagon, which was a tank. The Audi drove better at highway speeds, had a vastly superior stereo. But I have to say, I love the Volvo's style, excellent front seats, storage capability. What I don't like: Perelli tires which need to be replaced every 30K miles or so. haven't found a suitable replacement that tire cos will actually put on the car due to safety ratings and sizing issues. And since I do mostly city driving, the mpg is lousy. Overall, glad it was pre- certified. Have saved much $$$ having the dealer take car of stuff. I'd recommend the XC70.

Best Features

Front seats.

Worst Features

Better tire options. Better MPG
