Prior to this Volvo I had a new V60 D2 se powershift for 18 months after 3 years with a new XC60 R Design D5 Geartronic in Cosmic White, after a new XC90 ,and firstly a new XC70 SeLux D5 manual.

35 years online.. 2003 V70 2.4 auto.
Maybe.. Maybe next year I'll change her for xc70.. She's got 258000 on the clock, and may hold for another that, or may collapse next week.. And when I'm making 1300 miles jump, I want to be calm.. Not stressed even slightest bit.

I'm 64 and just got my very first Volvo, 2013 XC70 SE Lux, and have to say it's the best motor I've ever had and certainly the most luxurious. I love it!

Almost 67 and just retired. Bought a 2012 C70 Luxe Solstice (with 16500 miles on the clock) as a retirement present to myself.
Love the car. Living in the Highlands, it can be a bit chilly with the roof down but why have a convertible and always have the roof up?
My Mini Cooper had a glass roof and was great fun but this is so much better.
My husband would like one, too, but it's totally impractical with dogs!
