Notes: It's widely known that Volvo’s are built like tanks, especially the XC70. So it's no surprise this beast has a near perfect crash test rating. When it comes to the 2nd generation of the XC70, the 2006 is the first year that doesn't show potential transmission problems making it a best bet.

Here is the description of the problem that I posted on swedespeed forums > V70 & V70xc & XC70 (2001-current) regarding sun glare in our new XC70 Volvo that is so distracting that I feel it is a hazard: Post title: XC70 light interior reflection on driver's window posted by: Gretamax at 2:28 pm 7-31-2006 we just bought a 2006 XC70 with a taupe interior. When driving on a sunny day the reflection of the dash on the driver's window is strong enough to be a distraction. Wearing good sunglasses helps a lot. Volvo customer service says it's the design and is suggesting putting a dark cloth over the dash. Anybody else have this problem" any constructive suggestions" here are a few of the responses I received from other Volvo owners who are experiencing the same problem: Post title: Re: XC70 light interior reflection on driver's window (dugums) posted by: Kasumi at 8:00 am 8-1-2006 I thought my wife was crazy when she complained about the reflection in our 2004 V70. Then I tried to drive - very distracting. Its not awful, but on a really bright day, it can definitely affect your view. Post title: Re: XC70 light interior reflection on driver's window (madeinjapan) posted by: Freeworld at 12:26 pm 8-12-2006 ditto, ditto, and ditto! you are not making this up. My S60 has the black over the cowl and that reduces reflection in that area. My wifes XC70 is all light and the glare is huge. My polarized sunglasses help a lot, but I now have to buy her a pair since the XC70 was my idea.
