"Cherished 2007 XC-70 Cross Country for sale as we just bought a new 2016 XC-70 we loved this '07 so much! The 5 cylinder Turbo engine is "bomber" and the AWD system has taken us through 9 years of deep northern NH White Mountain snow & ice without a hitch. Actually goes through the snow/ice better than our Toyota Tacoma 4x4 truck does! In excellent shape - never an accident (even a parking lot dent) and comes with both winter snow tires and summer ties (both Goodyear). Inside leather is in near new condition with no rips,tear,stains, punctures and the carpet has always been protected by both winter and summer floor mats. Give it a look as you won't be disappointed and this car has at least another 100K miles to go as we have always kept all the services up to date on this car and always stored in a heated garage. A "babied" car for sure...hate to see her go - but the 2016 XC-70 sure is sweet too. (better be for $50K!!! :-o ) Contact coach.ggb@gmail.com for pictures - THNKS!"

Pros: "Style, handling and price to value"

Cons: "Back seat leg room"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"Bought this demo from a dealer with 4300 miles. Car is now 9 years old. Absolutely the best road car for the money. 20 MPG in town and 28 MPG w/steady highway use. Key is to faithfully maintain oil changes and other maintenance. Minor negative is back seat leg room. Near the point of needing major maintenance including timing belt but well worth the investment."

"The cars interior is hands down the best! Comfort and quality! have had to replace some parts and have found it easy to work on but with 294000 miles will keep driving until it becomes unpractible would recommend to anyone who appreciates the best . The 2.5 runs hard and can pass anything with ease and get 24 mpg not to mention the safety ratings what's not to like. 50 year old male 100,000 a year salary and have owned for 4 years at 25,000 miles ayear"

"If you want a car that's safe and reliable, this is the ride for you. In winter driving, it has no equal. Many times I witnessed suvs and 4 wheel drive p.u. owners in unsatisfactory predicaments, while I had absolutely no problem. The all wheel drive ratio is perfect."

Picking up a San Juan 21 in Kansas to sail back on the Chesapeake Bay.

"Our fourth Volvo wagon is eleven years old and we're looking forward to a trip to Gothenburg to get the latest XC70 T6 and enjoy a vacation in Europe. This is our favorite wagon to accomodate two grandsons with their own booster seats, to hoist our canoe onto roof racks lower than any SUV's and to install a factory trailer hitch for various trailers, not to mention safety and the world's best seats."
