I have had several volvo cars and this one is by far the worst _ most problems. The battery needed to be replaced at just under 50,000 miles. The car is currently at the dealer _ it just died in a parking lot and the AC and Lights would not turn off plus I kept getting all types of weird messages on the car. Called the dealer and they said not sure what is wrong and may be battery _ if so it means it only lasted 30,000 miles. Had to have the car towed and when I left the dealer they could not tell me when it would be looked at and the lights were still on and the key was stuck in the car and I would bet money that if I drove past there today the key would still be stuck and the lights if any life left in the car would still be on.
Car was loaded with everything but parking sensors and power liftgate, A cream puff 2010 with 16,000 miles , a day at war with sales staff and a final offer 2 days later I got it for 26 grand. That's one heck of a distance from the 43,000 it stickered for 2 years ago. Car is tight, room for my stuff, quite , has all the power I need and with no turbo takes regular fuel. I can go over 400 mile per tankful . I would have bought an Outback new at 32 grand, but this Volvo is more car. However keep in mind it takes one heck of a hit in its first 2 years. Mileage is what they claim , but hey if you drive a Volvo , you can afford it, right, of course right.
Seat folds flat for storage, the key less feature is cool , it stays in your pocket at all time. Did I say Quite, going down the road, it is quite.
I have had this car for a little bit now, and love every thing about it! i have heard that they have some problems but mine has held up fine. This car is amazing off road and in the snow. i live near Lake Tahoe and wile other cars and trucks were stuck in last years big snow storm my car just kept trucking along like there was no snow at all! heck iI was even able to pull my friend out of the now when all f the roads where absolutely covered in ice. and let me tell you when his car is not small at all. so if you are looking for a car that can get you there safely in any and i mean ANY type of weather this will be he car for you!
This is our fourth Volvo wagon in 16 years. And it's the most refined yet. Definitely go for the T6. It's fast for a wagon. And smooth on acceleration. Fuel economy is just so-so, but offset by the Safe + Secure package that comes standard (free maintenance and wear-and-tear for five years). So far (3,000 miles), so good. By the way, we gifted our 2002 XC70 to our son who lives in the mountains of Wyoming. It's just getting started at 100,000 miles.
Replaced Volvo S60 T5 (250 hp) and Lexus LX-450 (inline 6 at 218 hp) with 2010 XC70 T6. Key features: rear seat that folds into flat floor for transporting dogs, driver's seat I can sit in for an hour without my back hurting (sadly the reason I couldn't go with Audi), acceptable performance with 281 hp engine, nice mix of luxury features like highway manners at 90 mph. Delivered on all of the above at what seemed like a very competitive price compared with functionally equivalent vehicles from other manufacturers. Biggest drawback is having to refill gas tank so frequently.
Not thrilling but gets me home as fast as anything else I could drive on highway. Ground clearance is greatly appreciated compared with today's sedans.
Larger gas tank. Seems ridiculous that range on a full tank is below 300 miles.
