Positive notes on a Volvo XC60
2010 Volvo XC60 3.0T R-Design
Outside of normal repairs, tires, batteries, etc., my car has been very reliable. It has many safety features on it that are just now available on other makes of cars. Blind spot warning system and the lane roaming system are invaluable. I love the integrated cruise control, which automatically slows my speed when a car pulls in front of me and then resumes my speed when it is safe to do so. I love the heated seats and love that the rear passenger seats are also heated. There is plenty of legroom, front and back and plenty of storage in the back. Having the ability to fold down part or all of the back seats for hauling large items is an added plus. Mileage is average about 20 mpg, and the ride is smooth and comfortable. I did have to have the rear differential parts replaced, but luckily I had an extended warranty on the car, so the repair cost was fair. I do the recommended maintenance on the car and have had to replace the tire sensors on the two front tires. Also had to have the rear hatch lock replaced due to a malfunction. All in all, this is the best car I have ever owned and would buy another in a heartbeat. I have had some friends purchase this model after I did because of my positive feelings about it. The service department bus also very helpful, always explaining what needs to be done, and following up on service. I love everything about this car.
