Thumbs up

I'm on my third Volvo all of which have been XC 's , although I have driven other Volvo saloons and estates, and even though I miss the 7 seats of the 90 sometimes, the 60 is step up from the others, even though it is very thirsty compared to the other two.

So XC 60 fully loaded .

Honestly.?...none of 'em.!...I'm very happy with my VOLVO Volvo.!..she may be gettin' on a bit but still delivers all that I could want...reliably and consistently.
I guess if I literally HAD to buy one...it would still be a V70.

I love my estates and only the V70 ticks all the right boxes.

None of them.

If money was no object, I'd buy a 2004 Diesel V40, and 3 of every single service item and spare part I am likely to need, and run it for 30 years.

EDIT: OK I completed the questionnaire, so if you forced me into a Volvo showroom and put 50,000 in my hand, I would begrudgingly buy the new V40. In black, with black windows, I think they are just about ok.

Chose the V40 solely because there's a hot one coming out, have little interest in modern cars overall really but if I was 'forced' to get a new Volvo it'd be the hot V40 due out!

RUTV70 & Volvon - I'd agree with both of you (mine would be a museum-standard 854 TDi with delivery mileage), but one has to enter into the spirit of the poll!
