"I bought a 2004 Volvo XC70 used from a used car dealer for 4900 with 90,000 miles on it. One of the worst mistakes Ive made. Volvo made an impression on me thinking that it was a very affordable European car - it was far from it. Within the first month of owning it I put nearly the whole car value in repairs to get it tuned up and then I was price quoted with more than 7000 in repairs left to do.
The car was itself a disappointment. It was very heavy and got terrible gas mileage for its chassis - only 17 miles to the gallon on streets. It took me a little more than 40 dollars to fill the tank.
As soon as I pay off the loan I took out to buy it Im selling it."
"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."
