I loved my 2005 Volvo XC70. Everything about the car screamed quality. The swedes know how to build a car - the leather on the seats is very thick, very little plastic is used, and metal covers the exterior of the car. As much as I loved the car, I did have some issues with it. 1st, the siren went out and caused the sunroof to stop working (if you don't believe me, google it), and the check engine light came on once because the gas cap needed to be replaced. Neither of these issues cost very much money to fix, however. The car did have a little over 100,000 miles, so a few repairs are acceptable since Volvo cars will outlast any others if you take care of them. The other thing that I didn't like about the car was its fuel economy. I was averaging 21 MPG - might as well get an XC90. This car is really for those of us who don't buy into the SUV craze, but still need a light off-road vehicle with plenty of cargo space. The thing that really won me over on Volvo was safety. I know that in my XC70, I can rest assured knowing that I drive the safest car in the world. Look up "Volvo saved my life" and read the stories (CAUTION: You will never be able to drive another non-Volvo car if you do this :) I got a great deal on this car so I only bought it to re-sell it, but I ended up falling in love with the car. I would recommend the XC70 to anyone - in fact, I am buying a 2006 XC70 to replace my 2014 Camry Hybrid.

I love my XC70

First of all, it's a beautifully styled car, very comfortable and great on gas mileage...27-29 highway and about 22 locally on regular gasoline. Excellent acceleration. Very spacious cargo area. I've had mine since 2005 and have over 115,000 miles; I feel it will go another 115,000 easily. Virtually no maintenance problems. Service recommendations are at 7500 miles but I change oil every 3750 miles. Body is still in fantastic condition; no rust or wear. Leather seats have worn beautifully. I would recommend this car very highly. The only downside is that I wish there were a compass in the dashboard and a bigger place to hold sunglasses. Volvo offers a great deal for European Delivery, too. They'll give you two round trip tickets to Gothenberg, Sweden plus a night's stay in a hotel.

I got an excellent deal on this XC70. The ride, seat comfort, power, and space make it the perfect vehicle. I only owned it for 1500 miles (It was an investment), but I am now sold on Volvo. I did have some issues: The siren stopped working (sunroof stopped working too because of this (weird, I know), and the timing belt needed to be replaced. Many people would say that wagons are lame, but this car has POWER. Fuel economy is just like any other Crossover SUV. The style is awesome. I wish mine had the Third row jump seat. And the nav. Great car. I have fallen for them, and now they have me "For Life"!

The best car I have ever owned!

Ok so I baught this vehicle from my brother with 75k, he bought the vehicle with 51k and he had all scheduled maintenance done. I have kept up with the majore ones. I have no idea about the previous owner. This car has never left me stranded and rides like a dream! my wife loves it! 130k miles and still runs/rides perfect. There are the occasional minor fixes that will set you back a few hundred but really. as the car gets older even an extra $1200 year minor fixes is well worth it.. you can drive it for 20 years! The engine is iron clad (2.5 5cy) and it still drives like its on glass. tires are a pain, and MPG could be better but treat it right and will pay dividends!

Great car, lousy tire options and MPG

I bought my XC70 as a certified used car. I had previously owned an Audi A6 wagon, which was a tank. The Audi drove better at highway speeds, had a vastly superior stereo. But I have to say, I love the Volvo's style, excellent front seats, storage capability. What I don't like: Perelli tires which need to be replaced every 30K miles or so. haven't found a suitable replacement that tire cos will actually put on the car due to safety ratings and sizing issues. And since I do mostly city driving, the mpg is lousy. Overall, glad it was pre- certified. Have saved much $$$ having the dealer take car of stuff. I'd recommend the XC70.

I purchased this wagon for Michigan winters and it has been wonderful. I hate vans and SUVs so this was a great way to transport kids, snowboards, and weaving looms but then also have some dignity and style. It has been perfectly reliable and made winter driving a joy for this transplant from NC. The only change I'd make is the digital clock that tends to speed up and is difficult to set exactly. The car doesn't get super mileage, but the tradeoff is a heavy, safe and sturdy vehicle that I will keep hopefully as long as my last Volvo (15 years!!) I highly recommend this brand/model and hope it is still a winner in 10 more years.

There is a distinct delay when stepping on the gas pedal which can be a problem pulling out in heavy traffic. This car is truly terrible in the snow, seems to float, not in a good way. Changed the tires and this helped somewhat, but don't buy this car if you live in a snowy part of the country. Had over 100 "faults" in the computer electrical system recently, the dealer says this car is a computer on wheels and after over $500 (no parts in this cost) in computer software downloads cannot say if the problem will ever be totally fixed.

This is my fourth Volvo, which I have been buying new since 1996. My 2005 XC70 is by far the best of all. Its handling is what I like best, so solid in its gripping of all road surfaces. Seating and interior space are top notch. I currently have 30,000+ miles and have not had any maintenance issues, other than those scheduled!!

I have had so many problems with my 2005 XC70, that I am w/o a car more than I am with one. This is my 3rd Volvo and the worst one so far. From the driver door coming open while I was driving twice to gas shooting in my face due to a faulty gas line and cut off. I think I would have been better off with a car that is 20 years old. My car is now inactive again ( every month) because of a faulty trans. Do you think that Volvo or the Volvo dealership will take it back. NO! It is a lemon but of course in PA the lemon law is so crazy that I can't do anything with this car but to leave it in my driveway, due to the numerous times that it breaks down and put myself and my family at risk. So buyer beware

I own an Infiniti FX35 which I really enjoy driving (280 HP). I bought my wife the Volvo XC70 so she would stop driving my FX. Guess what? She can have the FX, I love the XC70! The XC70 rides very smoothly, has plenty of power, especially at high speeds, has incredible grip especially in snow, and has a huge trunk. I like the look as well. I bought the premium package and the interior materials are very nice, the stereo is great too. The gas mileage is average, however. We don't have kids but Ii have no problem driving a station wagon. I grew up in Europe and station wagons are in there. Here, there is a stigma about driving a station wagon. Great ride.

Volvo has done to the car, what NASA has succeeded to the space shutle, Long trips, comfortable, controls keep you company, they do everything without talking to you and at night they even relax your eyes, perfect ballance weight configuration, superb modulus of elasticity of the metal, sound and vibration minimal (dont feel it), not hard and stiff like the Mercedes or BMW, and soft like Lexus and most important it still caries the secret that only VOLVO owners know.

Exceptional automobile!

The XC70 is a great all purpose vehicle. It is fast and nimble on dry surfaces and has great traction in poor weather. It seats four *very* comfortably. The rear storage space is ample. In short, if you want a vehicle that can do everything fairly well this is the car for you.

My first v70 was a 2001, the new model year for this generation. beautiful comfortable auto but electrical problems. Replaced bulbs every other month. HAd to replace right front strut (warranty) at 35K. It is true what they say about buying the first model year generation. Avoid if possible. Purchased a new 2005 xc 70 same color. Love it! It has been all tweaked out. Seems to have all glitches worked out over the past four years. No problems with it. All wheel is the way to go. Sound steady ride and taunt feel.

Have had my XC70 for about 2 months now. Gas mileage is better than our 2001 2WD Suburban, but at about 14MPG in town, it's less than I expected. (Did read another review saying it should improve after 5k miles). Quick & very fun to drive; handles great; smooth transmission. Front seats are VERY comfortable. Back has almost no legroom. I'm 6'4" and my 4-yr old son cannot sit behind me b/c there's NO legroom. Has great features like auto- up and down front windows; same with sunroof; cargo tray in rear; rain sensing wipers; Geartronic; trip computer; well laid out controls. Aluminum passenger grab bar gets HOT in sun. Not a good place for coins. My wife is coveting the car.

Just took delivery of my new 2005 XC70. A trade from a 2002 XC70. Volvo has cut some corners which is very disconcerting. The under floor storage has been replaced with insulation (and not very well installed) The seat pockets are smaller. The handy in-dash cup holder has been replaced by a useless nook. The center console has lost a lot of its usefulness and been replace by useless cup holders. In short poor quality creep has set in, a trait learned apparently from Ford. unt. Additionally, the poor quality Perilli tires are still there.

Supurb and comfort, fun to drive are the outstanding feeling about this safest car in the world. Having SUV feeling with a little bit hard driving in the off-raod fields, it's quite easy and comfort on high-way and even at a jammed urban environment on the other hand. Perfect balance of comfort and fun to drive is the superiority of this car which is never realized by other manufacturers such as BMW, Merceds and Japanese averagers.

A very good decision to buy this car. I usually keep my cars for 10 years. Bought this car nine months ago and have put on 8,500 miles. I commute in this car and have taken it off-road and on the sand dunes. It works great in all environments and gets very good mileage for a versatile vehicle (average 21 mpg+). The driver and passenger seats are very comfortable for long trips and off-road. Very reliable so far and the dealer maintenance is great. Not a gas guzzeling SUV and much better than a station wagon. Ya gotta love this cross-over vehicle. Best of several worlds. Also, rated as a very safe vehicle in all types of collissions

This is my second Cross Country, having had a 2002 model. Improvements are dramatic: transmission shift smoothness, great radio controls and sound quality, and reduced turning radius are welcome changes. Seat comfort remains unsurpassed: even after a 10-12 hour non-stop trip you arrive refreshed at your destination. Don't be concerned about fuel consumption during the break-in period as it improves significantly. MPG during first 1000 miles was about 14/20 city/highway, now averaging 18/24 after 5000 miles and still improving. Initial thirst followed by major improvement in fuel consumption after break-in is a common Volvo characteristic. Build quality and fit/finish are excellent.

The XC70 is surprisingly quick and agile for its size. It hugs the road in the twisties and provides more than ample passing power. Controls are sensibly placed, easily understood and intuitively managed. Comfort and stability, generously dished up, are enhanced by cutting-edge safety features, providing the family transport holy graile: peace of mind.

I purchased a 2005 Volvo XC 70 to replace my 2002 XC70 CC. It is virtually same car, but with smoother performance and ride. The transmission on my 2002 broke down at around 28,000 miles, but I purchased another one anyway. This is a great wagon. It is very dependable and fun do drive. The outside visability problems that I expereiced with my 2002 have been corrected to a degree. This model's response, including turbo, is smoother than in 2002 was and the transmission definitely works better. It has great pickup and hugs the road. Its perfect for snowy weather. I can drive with no problem in weather that forces other 4WD off the road. Overall, this is a good car even for the slightly lofty price.

I chose the XC70 because of its versatility, reliability, and safety. It has met my expectations and then some. It has lots of room, all the amenities I want (but not those I do not want), has decent gas mileage, and is fun to drive for a wagon, especiall with the Geartronic transmission. My 3- year old son and our three Labs are the reasons why we need this type of vehicle. I used to drive an SUV, but prefer my AWD Volvo.
