Volvo Cross Country XC70 (2009)

  • Safe — you feel like you're in a bank vault
  • Solid, quiet
  • Handles great
  • Plenty of power: 281 HP
  • All-wheel-drive standard
  • Very comfortable ride

  • Pricey
  • Only gets 20 MPG on highway — lousy mileage for a car that's marketed to socially conscious consumers
  • Expensive to repair
  • Two-step process to start car is cumbersome
