"This is the best car I've ever owned. It is so comfortable for long rides, its like being in a recliner. Although it could get better mileage, I wouldn't trade it for anything else. It is easy to use all the options and the navi screen is the biggest I've seen compared to other vehicles. The kids love the DVD and the sound is great. My youngest appreciates not having to use a "baby seat" and happily uses the built in booster. I never run out of cargo room even with vacation luggage for five."
"My only complaint about this Volvo XC wagon is that the gas mileage doesn't equal that of a hybrid. I am very concerned with the amount of money I'm paying for gas as well as the increased environmental damage that internal combustion engines are doing. Guess I'm going to have to compromise on comfort and carrying capacity."
"I bought a 2004 in 2009. The car had 93K miles. More than 10K miles and a year later I could not have been any happier. This is a great car. It is very comfortable, it handles extremely well and is a joy to drive on any road condition. The only negative is the fuel consumption. I get about 16 miles in the city and 20 in the highway. This is the only reason I put 4 stars for value. I recommend this car and I have become a Volvo enthusiast."
"The most comfortable vehicle I've ever owned; I have the power leather seats. I actually use it off-road several times each year, so the AWD and the high clearance really helps. And like the traditional Volvo wagon, it holds a lot for its size."
"This vehicle has done everything that it was asked to do, very well. Even though it is a wagon, it kind drives like a sports car. Comfortablility is unsurpassed, with the heated leather seats. It has been one of the best vehicles that I have ever driven in real bad weather. It is my belief that Volvo sets the standards for building a great vehicle."
"I leased a 2005 xc70 and knew i'd buy it almost immediately. it is the most comfortable, best handling car i've ever owned and that includes a few sports cars. I can fit the entire family with the optional 3rd row and drive confidently knowing they're safe. The engine is terrific, the seats are luxuriously comfortable, the stereo sounds great and i feel like a king driving it...what more would anyone need?"
"This car is on par with BMW and Mercedes as far as quality and comfort go. It has an amazing 4wd system that is better than anything out there. I have had this car on some serious 4wd roads and it was like a tractor when it needed to be yet can drive it all day long distances and not be fatigued.
This is one of the most capable and versitile vehicles out there. Being a wagon it is short enough to still load bikes and kayaks on it easily."
"Spacious, quiet, powerful pickup, great cargo space, feeling of safety and, of course, stylish. Love the extra ground clearance over the V70. The AWD is fantastic. Handles beautifully. Decent mileage economy, much better hwy than local."
"my lease will be up in May. I love this car and will miss it. I am horribly forced to buy a minivan (it's practical) but I will be back. In 4 years I never had a problem and just recently had to pay for an oil change (they've been taken care of). Looks good in valet parking and looks good plowing thru a snow bank."
