Volvo Xc70 Cross Country Joy — There have been absolutely no maintenance or mechanical issues with this car. It drives like a dream and is a smooth, quiet ride. The stereo system is nice and the seats are comfortable. It is fantastic if you have children and need extra space for friends or pets.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great family car, Nice sedan look, Will appeal to business person or pet owner that needs good cargo space.

Cons: Not as powerful as my Lexus LX470.

My Second Xc70 — Great power with de 5cyl Turbo. This model as a confort / sport switch for the suspension (Active Four C System) Looks great with the Thule box on top. Really a safe car to drive in winter time. Four wheel drive is great.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Simply looks good

Cons: Drinks a lot of gas

Eye Catching Ocean Race! — I love the plush leather/cloth seats that hug you on long trips. The combination of leather/cloth is nice because you don't stick to it on those hot summer days. I love the versatility of suv/wagon and how easy it is to move things around. The T5 engine is responsive yet economical. I wish the AWD was 4-WD so that it would use less gas.

Pros: comfort, engine performance

Cons: gas milage

Solid Performer .. Great Cruiser But Not For Racing From The Lights — Owned Olav for a few weeks now -- daily commuting, a couple of trips into the Alps and a cruise from Geneva to the UK. Sublime seats and a great motorway cruiser - and copes with all the off-road challenges most of us will ever need. Will be interested to hear how passengers in the back find the car. However, don't try racing away from the lights or over-taking in tight opportunities in twisty lanes. It's a bit of an oil-burner accelerating from a start uphill. Better value for money than alternatives from Audi.

Pros: Comfort for cruising with off-road ability

Cons: Acceleration from a standing start is not great.

Love This Car — There's nothing I don't like about this car. There's a reason they say 'Volvo for Life'

Pros: Everything, but especially the heated seats.

Cons: Nothing.  Absolutely nothing.
