For a vehicle of its vintage, the 2009 Volvo XC70 has a wonderfully comfortable, stable, and quiet ride, especially after equipping it with new Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus tires. Its only shortcomings are its gas mileage and its stereo system.
Story
It's great for taking the dog to the dog park.
Pros
Favorite attributes include the solidness, build quality, safety features, ergonomics of the seat, versatility of the cargo space options. With the optional cargo barrier and cargo divider, it's great for hauling a dog (or two) around.
Cons
The top negative attribute if this vehicle is the woefully low gas mileage - 15 city, 22 highway. Those numbers are hard on the wallet and, in this era of global climate change, hard on the conscience. As a result, I do not drive this vehicle all the time. I have another vehicle that I use most of the time. The other negative thing about this vehicle is the sound system. The sound is flat-out terrible. And, as a 2009 model, it does not support modern inputs like a USB stick for inputting your own music. If I had some extra money to spend, I would upgrade the stereo with an after-market system.
