Hi All - Just picked up an '05 XC70 with 69k(km) - Canadian Eh! I've had a couple of Volvos in the past with no regrets. I'm not sure of the history behind this car but the mileage would indicate a town car and it sure feels like it. Rides like a dream on the highway but sure is rough on secondary roads. Hates pot holes, bumps, cracks you name it. Before I take it to a dealer, does anyone have any suggestions on what to check for?

Probably just the tires. Too much pressure? Tread getting thin? Certain makes ride better than others. Not enough miles yet to worry about shocks or bushings.

Tires are good - fairly new Michelins with about 80% tread left. The car has electronically controlled suspension with a Comfort/Sport rocker switch on the dash. Doesn't seem to affect the ride though in either mode.

BHart - thanks for the referral. I'll check for a software update and find out if IPD parts are available in Ontario
