2012 Volvo XC70

Great crossover
We only had this unit as a loaner and would consider purchasing one in the future. The ride is very good, interior styling is well laid out and very driver friendly. Things worked as they were supposed too, never did enough driving in it to get the feel for fuel economy though. Volvo is a leader in vehicles for colder climates and should be good to have in Canada year round...

2010 Volvo XC70

Just a perfect car
Volvo…. What can I say …. this brand even does not need an advertisement.
But I would like say some words about Volvo XC70.
It is really really amazing car. I love it because:
- very quiet inside even when you drive 100KM/h,
- very safe car. One of the features that I love is “Laser Radar auto brake safety system” It will stop the car in case of emergency even if you are pressing the accelerator pedal.
- Very good interior and exterior design
- The trunk space is huge and it is enough for any trip including fishing, lakes, cottages… etc.

2004 Volvo XC70

by TTownsend on 10-12-2012
A hidden gem in the used car field.
My wife and I are on our second volvo XC70, a 2004 with a blue exterior and beige leather interior. We have two small children and we go everywhere in this car.

The XC70 is a tank. No question, the safest feeling car I've ever owned. It is solid, robust, and capable.

This car looks great. It's a wagon that says "I might be a wagon, but can you do this?" then forage happily off across a farmers field in the middle of a Canadian winter. Yes, it can.

Whenever this one expires (which is likely to be a very long time from now) I will immediately replace it with another.

The engine is responsive and powerful enough, and because the turbo uses a variable blade angle compressor (very cool piece of machinery) it has lots of low-end bite; great torque for launching out of muck and snow. On the highway this car rides with refined European manners and is smooth and settled. Braking is terrific - no serious nose-diving; it tracks straight and smooth quickly, like someone dropped the anchor.

Economy on the highway is a pleasant surprise - at 110km I averaged +/- 35mpg, though it does go down a lot in the city.

For the handy people out there, this car is easy to work on. I replaced a wheel bearing in my driveway in one hour. Brake jobs are equally easy and there are plenty of sources of quality, low-cost parts for this car. One of the benefits of the benefits of being owned by Ford at one time is that the parts supply chain works well, so it is not expensive to service.

Overall, this car delivers strongly in every area and is very stylish.

As I said, I would not hesitate for an instant in getting another.
