Volvo Owner Car Reviews

2012 Volvo Xc70 D5 Review

After 118,000km's I am making way for a different kind of car for the family now, but figure it's worth a write up on the car finally. In order of the scores this site gets you to list; Performance and Economy I drove around 30,000kms per year, with about 90% of that at between 80 - 110km/h. It averaged around 7.2L/km (6.9L/km freeway and 7...

2013 Volvo S60 T5 Luxury Review

Reliable, safe and good low down torque when pushed. Spacious and fuel economy on highway is 5.9 litres per 100 The interior quality is second to none no squeaks or rattles and servicing costs are very reasonable now having completed 35,000km of trouble free motoring. The noticeable thing is slight wind noise from the side mirrors at speed...

2016 Volvo Xc90 D5 2.0 Inscription Review

Two months in and it has been an amazing car so far. Unbelievably quiet and performs very well around town and on the highway. Plenty of grip and we have just come back from 400km in the country, much of gravel roads which it stuck to like glue. The systems are easy to work and access though you need to remember to keep your eyes on the road and not get to wrapped up in them...

2015 Volvo S60 Polestar Review

Having owned a Mazda MPS 6 for 10 years, I reluctantly decided it was time for an upgrade. I say reluctantly because the MPS 6 was a brilliant car, a real drivers car with superb performance and quality. This is my first Volvo and so far i'm very impressed. The finish and build quality is excellent, as is the long list of standard features and inclusions...

2014 Volvo V40 T5 Cross Country Review

my 2014 Volvo V40 Cross Country had done faultless and comfortable 25,000km. its comfort factor is high. its performance factor is high. It is reasonably thirsty in all city driving but luckily i very little of that. But on the highway it get 7.2l/100km on the F1 driving in Cruise control at the speed limits...

2015 Volvo Xc90 T6 2.0 Inscription Review

The step up from the old XC90 is certainly appreciated. This car has brought the model up into the X5 & Q7 stables. It gives classy appearance and displays quality interior with so much information as to the vehicle operation on the big screen. It has been a real culture change to accept that you don't need the big V8 or V6 with the reassuring growl to get up and go...

2009 Volvo Xc60 D5 2.4 Review

Impressive car. Owned since new and clocked 173500 kms now, mainly inner city driving, the car reliability still impresses me. Well, compared to previous cars I owned, some since new, others used, I usually get a blown gasket or transmission failure pretty much around 120.000 km mark...

2015 Volvo V40 D4 Luxury Review

This is my 7th Volvo and the best ever. Good looking, smart,with excellent performance from the smooth 5 pot engine, this is an intelligent city and country car. I was looking an agile city car with moderate space, looks and performance and from Europe. I have had VW, Fiat and Renault…but went back to Volvo for quality, reliability and longevity...

2015 Volvo Xc60 T5 Luxury Review

Have only owned car for 10 days. Just love total package. Sure, rear sear leg room a wee bit skimpy, lots up front where I live. 4 cyl TURBO 8speed combo awesom. 175 km trip, 20 kms on Odo, averaged 8.8 l/100. Turning radius larger than expected. Premium plus package (canada), all the options. Seats superb, sound very good, fit and finish outstanding...

1979 Volvo 2 Review

When we moved to Hobart in 2001 it was the middle of a mini boom (the state population had actually increased for the first time since 1969) and there was a chronic housing shortage. We needed to buy a house, and to scrape together the deposit sold a perfectly good Mercedes 190E 2.6 (what a sleeper) and a cross continent trailer towing Suzuki Vitara...

2014 Volvo XC60 Review

Volvo is a European marque with a history of making premium cars for over 80 years. The XC60 is the company's second foray into the SUV market and a 2014 update means this car is dripping with the latest in automotive technologies. Volvo conjures visions of comfort, safety and practicality and more recently - speed...
