Overall I am very happy with the car. My one criticisim is the cost of original manufacturers parts. As such I us a local indepedant service company who do their best to source alternative parts where practical. Build Quality is excelllent and I would happily recomend a used Volvo as a good buy.

I have the V70 2.5T Auto, great car, this `new` shape is very pleasing. Loads of space, very comfortable, does everything I want of it. Cannot think of anything `extra` that is not already on it I would want. I think it is very underated by those who don`t know the car.

This is a fine car spoiled by a couple of things: 1) a ridiculous turning circle of 11.9m, or 39 feet, that makes me look like a novice in the car park and 2) more NVH than I would expect in a car of this supposed quality.

This is the very best car I have ever owned. During the last 30 of motoring I have bought/leased some 30+ vehicles and this model is by far the best one.
It is smooth to drive and a joy to own.

Exactly what we thought we would get from a Volvo. Highly practical, loads of room, excellent performance for such a big car (we do have the 2.5T) although it is rather thirsty (20-22mpg)

excellent for the purpose - journeys to and from parts of england, and then twice a year 700 miles each way there and back to France, always fully loaded with stuff in both directions.
