2005 Volvo V70

Trim: T5
by emerson47 on 10-11-2012
Superb
After I went to the 2012 Vancouver International Autoshow, and sat in all the cars, the only car as comfortable as this V70 was the $100K + Mercedes Benz S-Class. That truly says a lot about this ride! Top of the line tires and synthetic oil coupled with the intensity of Volvo's high pressure R turbo, make this V70 second to none. Never mind the fact that the 2005 V70 T5 is perhaps the rarest Volvo of the 21st Century. Rarer than the V70 R and 300 Ibs lighter!

2011 Volvo XC60

Trim: T6

Great cruiser and family car
There are only two things I don't like about this car. The fuel economy is not good. I get 11.5l/100km. I wasn't expecting great economy given the powerful 3L turbo engine but I was a bit surprised at how much it costs me to drive it. The second thing I don't like is the control panel for the phone/audio etc. The center panel is a beautiful design but all the buttons are too small and it is hard to find the button you are looking for without looking away from the road. Given Volvo's reputation for safety I was dissapointed by this as I think it is dangerous to shift your focus away from the road to change the radio station or any settings.

Other than that though, it is a great car. Super comfortable. Great ride. Very quick accelleration which is super handy when passing. Good storage space. We have also had a good experience so far with our Volvo dealer for service etc. Overall I would recommend this car to young families looking for a luxury oriented family car.

2001 Volvo V70

by TWZSUV on 10-10-2012
V70 good for most part, a bit finicky
I bought the car used and it is reliable. The suspension seems to need a lot of work and there seems to always be a light bulb out somewhere on the car.

The car is great for transporting kids with the built in booster seats. Love the leather interior and the controls on the car are all well placed. Overall it is a good car. Wish the gas mileage was better though.
