"This is my 5th Volvo after a 740, 850, S70, C70, and not XC70. Yes, all Volvos are on the expensive side to maintain, but with Volvos safety and absolute comfort I can live with the expense of yearly maintenance. The seats in the XC70 are not as comfortable as the C70 or S70, but they are still orders of magnitude more comfortable than the X3 or E Class Merc. Decent gas mileage and pickup."
"We bought our 04 model when we moved to Germany. We have owned it almost 5 years and I still am in love with it. It handles great in the snow and is still smooth on the autobahn. My husband even looks good driving it. The XC70 has a classic rugged look, not cheap and plasticy like so many cars today. On top of that it is an inviting ride on the inside. We can fit our dogs or bikes and go anywhere in comfort. Wow, it is expensive to maintain but if it lasts me ten or more years it will be worth it!"
Pros: "Ultra-reliable AWD - all season luxury wagon"
Cons: "None - just time to replace it with another XC-70"

"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.
