Great for an outdoorsy on-the-go family!

2006 Volvo XC70 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)


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!

Best Features

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!

Worst Features

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.

Hi, I have the same XC70 as you and I'm at 50K miles on my tires. Which tires did you eventually get and do you like them so far? Thanks in advance. Steve
