    Did you ever figure this out? I noticed the same thing on my 04 XC. Turned out part of it was bad tires (cupping on all 4 tires.) They were Hankook Optimo. Only 13k on tires. They produced a bit of a rumbling sound. I replaced them yesterday with Continental contact tour Plus. Now I hear more of a whine at starting at about 55 mph. Nothing loud but its there. To test bearings I swerved left to right at lower speeds but no change in sound. I just replaced the differential oil but it still seems to be there. Bring to dealer later to have them listen.

    Swerving left to right only tells you about the front hubs generally, I had to replace a rear hub because of a constant noise, just did both because i had the tools out, only one was bad though, aftermarket units two for 1/2 the price of one Volvo hub, easy to replace so I'll take that risk,

    Just removed two original rear bearings at 260K mi while replacing the final drive. One was absolutely fine, couldn't tell the difference between it and the replacement. The other was feeling rough but not binding. Seems the OEM bearings last a looong time.Not sure the car will make it to 520K though
