We love our XC70 and will drive it until 300K and then buy another!
Throttle control - replaced by volvo by recall post car being out of warranty.
Power windows and sunroof had issues which were covered by warranty and when vehicle was out of warranty, still observed by dealer as pre-existing conditions during warranty and were repaired.
Headlights did burn out every few months for first two years, but, now are fine... knock on cypress.
I love my XC70. My daughter's ages 3 and 7 fit in the boosters, thus, eliminating the need for ugly and inefficient after market boosters. The storage cubbies, ability to drop seats, heavy duty interior, and TURBO when I need it are all very beneficial. Handling at high speeds on the highway, and avoiding obstacles at over 100 mph has been observed on more than one occasion while driving alone on a West Texas Highway!
This car is a must for individuals that travel with kids, have kids, haul items, etc. It is a Fine European Touring Wagon with SPEED.
Granted it doesn't run like the S-70 TURBO I previously owned, but, it zips. Best yet I've never rec'd a speeding ticket in it. How could a family wagon go over 70 mph?
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
