    Volvo XC60 used car review - What to look out for when buying a used Volvo XC60

    As an Elvis fan, I have to say that the singer created an enormous body of completely unlistenable music. In recent history, the American-owned Swedish automaker has unleashed a range of vehicles that did little more than remind us how far the iconic brand has fallen.

    I understand that an elevated driving position creates a sense of control and perceived safety. In the metal, the XC60 is as perfectly sized and proportioned as a Steinway piano. Volvo gets credit for attaching a brand-faithful snout to a highly raked windshield without creating an acre of dashtop plastic or A pillars that could support Trump Tower.

    The controls are ergonomically sound and appropriately Ikea-like. Once again, damn the man who invented all-season tires. Thanks to its overly stiff rubber, the XC60 is just that little bit too hard riding. It ruins any chance of an upscale vibe, serving an unwelcome reminder that the XC60 shares its underlying architecture with the ill-fated Land Rover LR2. Do I have to mention safety? Even in the current economic climate. Even if Wo Fat buys the brand. Too bad about the interior though. I would have liked to have seen that great matte layered wood that Volvo offers as an option instead of the aluminum trim.

    Volvo needs to ditch the remote control navigation system though. I am also an Elvis fan, and agree he wasted many years recording crap, though I will say even in the worst of times i. Of course, the Colonel and RCA, in all their brilliance buried it on the back end of a sorry soundtrack. That song alone could have been a stellar release for Elvis in and fit the mood of the country well and what was going on in the music scene.

    I will be at Graceland again this August. Sorry for the diversion from the auto stuff. Will chat about Elvis with you anytime. All I can say — if the Volvo interior is low-rent then I think one of us needs to see an eye doctor…. You see how that works? I judge it on look and feel. More specifically, try the overhead switches that control the cabin lights.

    But car designers should be, too. I actually just bought an XC60 one month ago. I never would have had Volvo on my radar but I saw this one at the Detroit Auto show and just fell in love.

    My decision came down to an A4 Avant and the Volvo. Also the integrated child seats will be huge when he gets a bit bigger. I keep thinking that adaptive cruise control is a gizmo that once use it, you can never go back to regular CC. The problem is that more than likely, when ACC is offered, it probably is only packaged with all of that other electronic shit.

    And It may take many years before this luxury feature eventually migrates down to vehicles with a cloth interior. The XC60 is surprisingly good and half decent to drive for a Volvo. Volvo should consider themselves very fortunate that Lexus has still not decided whether they want to enter this fight.

    It may steal a few sales from those too nervous to buy the far superior Q5 and upcoming X3 replacement, but not enough. This alone will not save Volvo from oblivion. Volvo interiors may be cheap, but the maintenance costs are just as high as the Germans.
