2007 Volvo XC70 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)


This is my second Volvo XC70 after the 2004. The 2007 model is on the same chassis, same engine but the miles per gallon are poor. I get less than 14 MPG in the city and about 19 MPG on the highway. I use premium gasoline and my driving pattern is the same as with the 2004 which got at least 22 on the highway and 17MPG in the city. The dealer has tried a few minor tweaks but won't really look into the problem and does not care. I think I bought a lemon as far as gas mileage is concerned. Other features on the wagon are good to great but with gas prices so high, this is not a car to own.

Best Features

I love the handling of the XC70. Nice cornering and ease on the highway.

Worst Features

Interior storage in the front seat is limited. It could be so much better. There is very little room for necessities.
