2003 Volvo XC70 OWNER RATINGS & REVIEWS
Write a review
Reliable, safe and inexpensive transportation.
This is the most reliable car I have ever owned. It goes great in the snow and has never left us on the side of the road. Very good on gas. I love how roomy it is. I actually moved using my XC70. The seats are very comfortable, making it great for long car rides. The only repair I have needed to make is the transfer case. That broke a while ago, but it still goes great in the meantime. I have recommended this to all my friends, and a few of them now drive them as well and are just as happy with theirs as I am with mine!

Overall I find the car to be very reliable. Volvos are not known for their style, but this one has a certain charm. I like the way it looks and smile when I see other cars like it on the road. It is very comfy, and the spacious back area has proven a lifesaver when I have to sleep in it during long trips. It doesn't have any blind spots besides the normal ones in most cars. It hasn't had that many issues other than a factory recalled gas line issue which the dealer failed to fix twice. This was a cheap repair in general, but I used my warranty. Gas mileage is great for a non hybrid, I can get nearly 30 mpg on the highway, and the automatic mpg average makes this into a fun game during long haul trips. The car is surprisingly fun to drive, and no one expects its acceleration or handling. It's not going to win any street races, but it always does what is required. It accelerates well, brakes quickly, and handles steadily. I feel very safe and in control driving it. As it is a Volvo, I know I will survive even when it doesn't.
