Comment:

 A brief background; I have been driving Volvo V70's for 13 years now so from that statement alone you can ascertain that I am very happy with the V70 as this is my fifth. This car is the most technically advanced I have had with many extra features such as the Driver support pack, Winter Pack, Security Pack, Harmon Kardon Stereo, and all the features standard on an SE Lux. I have noted however that corners are now being cut and am disappointed in Volvo as they are clearly aiming at the executive saloon market. For instance all these items have now gone; the heavy duty car mats, the 12v power supply in the boot, Chrome wheel nuts now with cheap plastic covers, a plastic hook to hold up the boot compartment instead of pistons, pockets from the front seat, spare wheel, protective cover on the rear bumper, the solid build feel of the body and the loss of the D5 engine. That said, this is still a quality car and to most people who don't go back as far as I do many of the losses will not be noticed. Now the good stuff, you still feel as though you are surrounded with a safe and reactive car that passes the miles like they are yards, this is the only car I have driven to France and back in and had no back ache and still feel refreshed. The safety features with lane departure, city safe and adaptive cruise control all give you confidence that the car is working harder than you. The ride quality means that whatever the English roads throw at you is taken in its stride. If you are looking for an executive estate then this car should certainly be top of your list; I have driven most German cars and the V70 still wins hands down. But don't take my word for it have a go yourself and you will understand why I have been with Volvo so long.

 We are very pleased with the V70. Apart from the 13 plates, it could be a brand new car. It is quiet and comfortable, with plenty of space for the dogs and ourselves. Although it has the 2.4 litre engine it is surprisingly economical. I got 58.8 mpg on a 159 mile round trip to the airport and even 30 mpg towing our quite heavy caravan. Even our two cavalier spaniels are happy as they can see out from the back of the car - something rarely possible more high-waisted cars.

Comment:

 D3 V70 2.0 litre diesel is a comfortable drive as expected, has lots of room and I would take its reliability for granted. However, I assumed that it would have better fuel consumption figures for longer journeys than my last car, a 2005 2.4 litre diesel V70 with 170k miles on clock. Old car could do 60 mpg, this one struggles to get to 50 mpg. Not sure why older, bigger, less refined engine would perform better.

 We have recently purchased a 5 year old V70 automatic and are very pleased with it and all the electronics. The electronic handbrake was a little worrying at first but soon mastered - pity V70s are no longer manufactured.
