Researched heavily prior to purchase, so I knew what I was getting into. Recently got into a big accident (my '10 Cadillac SRX got tatalled), so safety was definitely a priority. PROS: 1. Great cabin. Most comfortable car seats I've ever experienced and very quiet. Lots of glass give more airy atmosphere. 2. Simple yet high quality interior fittings (some may think "outdated") 3. Sooo much room. Went 2 campings and my 5'5" wife slept in the flat rear comfortably. 4. Solid performance at high RMP (freeway)...AWD big plus going camping. CONS: 1. Drinks gas (AWD; good thing no premium fuel required). Avg. 18 MPG overall. 2. Drives heavy. Sluggish during stop N go (still trying to get used to it) 3. Weak AC. Front passengers are okay, but rear passengers have to deal with hot air from the cargo space. 4. My driver side seat is warmer (maybe something wrong w/ seat warmer) 5. Navigation is controlled with a remode. Really? 6. It's a wagon...not the sexiest thing (no one thinks it's a off-roading capable X-Country vehicle.) Conclusion: If you are family oriented and goes on lots of trips w/ kids and not your commuter, buy it. Don't need luxury brand (quieter, plusher) and want to save money? Buy Subaru Outback AWD.
The XC 70 comes in two engines choices, the T6, turbocharged, the the only way to go. I drive in the mountains of NC and the interstate, the turbo provides much pep and averages around 22-24 MPG
Our low mileage 2008 Volvo XC 70 is perfect for us. Everything works. The AWD is great. Storage is excellent. Ride is comfortable. We are seniors who need more of that than when we were younger. 2008 was a redesign year for Volvo. If you are looking for a great used Volvo wagon start with 2008. Research pricing. We found that no-haggle price for our Volvo and no haggle trade-in were close enough to what we figured for a good deal. Trade in also reduces sales tax to you.
