Vehicle2000 Volvo V70 R Turbo 4dr Wagon AWD
ReviewWonderful wagon, very fast and comfortable. Experience has been mostly positive but car is not without shortcomings. Stiff suspension makes around town driving an exercise in patience. Numerous rattles throughout the interior make it necessary to crank the stereo. Once on the highway however, the car is very quiet. Dealer feels the nature of being a wagon, coupled with the amount of aluminum used in the build results in chassis flex which causes all the rattling. Another disappointment is the fuel economy. A combination of city/highway miles with a conservative driving style nets about 19 mpg.
Best FeaturesSafety features - I feel there is no better vehicle for avoiding and surving accidents than a Volvo. AWD is a pleasure and makes winter driving a breeze. Sound system is great but the disc changer has broken twice requiring an entire stereo replacement by the dealer.
Worst FeaturesObviously, the interior noise needs to be addressed. Specifically, our rear hatch has rattled since receiving the car. Approximately six attempts by the dealer to fix have been unsuccessful.
