Volvo XC70 2008 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Volvo XC70 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • What is the best tow vehicle to buy?

    The GQ Patrol was a tough old bird, but it’s old and buying one now is a gamble. You could consider a Toyota Landcruiser, but again your budget will limit you to an older vehicle and that is always a risk. You could perhaps consider fitting power steering to the XF ute.

  • Massive electrical fault on 2014 Volvo XC70

    We haven't heard of any other reports of this, but it sounds serious. I would ask Volvo for an explanation of what happened and why. Seems an investigation is warranted.

  • Premium vs regular unleaded on Volvo XC70

    The recommended fuel for the XC70 is 95-octane, which is Premium unleaded. You could use regular unleaded, but you won't get the same economy or performance from it. You could improve your economy by stepping up to 98-octane, but you have to weigh up the benefits against the extra cost of the fuel to determine if the higher quality fuel is worth it.
