We've owned our XC70 for four years and hope to keep it forever. We take many road trips - mountains, coasts, 1000+ mile trips, and it's been wonderful. We haven't had any problems at all. We do our regular oil changes and maintenance and it just goes anywhere we wish to take it! Today - at around 41K miles - we are shopping around for our first new set of tires. The Pirelli's that came with the car were OK, but we're going to put some Michelin's on to see how we like those better. The kids get carsick in other vehicles, but have never had a problem in the XC70. We also camp quite a bit and are able to fit everything for a family of four into the back. We're very happy with our Volvo!
Comfy interior, park assist sensors, fun to drive, feels safe and more sturdy than other cars. Does great on snow and ice and slick rainy situations. Love our moon/sunroof. Lots of cargo space. The Home Safe lighting system is handy. We also love the service we get at our dealer! Good people!
Could use a little more leg room in the back seats for the kids, but I don't see how they would do that without taking away the cargo/storage space which is one of our favorite features.
After four years and 68500 miles my XC70 is holding up well. Still drives like a new car and enjoy it every day. Interior and exterior build quality is great. It has never broken down and the only repair was a hole in the radiator for road debris. It is always loaded with surf boards and still has room for three people. Very comfortable seats and outstanding visibility. A great balance of snow, mild off road and street performance. Around town MPG 18 and highway 23.
Exterior styling, rounded driving performance, interior room and ergonomics. I like that I don't see others on the road everyday. This car has been very reliable.
Only one minor suggestion. Quiet blinkers. They are not as loud as some, but BMW's are much quieter and less annoying.
We must have had over 50 vehicles of all kinds over the years. This one is a tank. I feel so safe. Although we have only had it a few months, I could not be more impressed. I have yet to go through a winter but with a hill for a driveway it is very comforting to know I will make it up without any issues. Can't wait to try it in the snow. I feel very secure, rich, and cared for when driving.
