No better wagon for the $

2001 Volvo V70 Wagon T5 Fwd 4dr Wagon (2.3L 5cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

I've been driving this wagon for almost 3 years and still love it. It's fast, responsive looks great and hauls a bunch of stuff (or 7 people with the 3rd row). It's still a solid ride, never been in the shop for anything other than regular maintenance. Cup holder lost it's spring and original 17" tires (too loud) swapped for Michelin Pilots. It's only fair competition is the BMW and MB wagon (at least another $10K more). No mini-van or SUV comes close in terms of value, style, performance. In response to previous comment on '01 wagon being a "jerry-rigged Ford" ...Ford bought Volvo in '99 when the new model was already at the auto shows.

Review

It's been great owning this car. We've loved it's versatilty, solid feel, performance and comfort. Its been very reliable, perfect to this point. We drove the BMW 528 befor buying this and noticed that the it felt better than our 960 sedan, however, when we drove the T5 it felt as good and was a heck of alot faster for $9,00 grand less but that included $1,000 loyalty bonus at the time.

Find the cost of service to be slightly on the high side. However, service dept is #1

It could have been a contender

Review

If you prefer the safety and handling of a station wagon to an SUV or a van, the V70 seems to be the ideal choice.But... Our V70 has been in the shop eight times in two years. Five bulbs have burned out, and not because of daytime running lights either, as turn signal and brake lights also burned out. The service department just states that this happens. Unfortunately, the most crashworthy car is not very safe when you are driving around out of town at night with one headlight.The remaining choices for a family are a much more expensive but well-made foreign wagon (not a jerry-rigged Ford) or a safe, boring, soggy-driving Toyota or Honda van.

I am happy with my V70 T5. Only a few minor problems. Drives great. Has a sporty suspension feel.

Update on T5

Review

Update of prior '01 T5 review after almost 2 years. Still love car, except for minor problems faced by others. "Upgraded" Pirelli tires SUCK - tire performance average and durability terrible - replaced three tires that developed "bulges", repaired many leaks and they are almost worn out after 27K miles. Mechanical dash cupholder broke. Finally, thanks to "daytime running lights" that leave all the lights on all the time, bulbs burn out often - replaced a headlight, turn signal and brake light. Still, these problems minor and tire issue will go away after Pirellis replaced once and for all. Positives of this excellent car completely outweigh negatives.

Fun to drive wagon with more space than many SUV. First year after redesign has reliability issues, mainly electrical nature.

Review

Don't buy this car! This car had an oil leak at the same spot three times during the first month of me owning it. When you first buy the car, it is fast! It's like a rocket! But after 12,000 miles, the car doesn't accelerate worth anything! The brakes needed to be replaced at 18,000 miles. The tires needed replacing at 20,000. The interior rattles like crazy. And there is a knocking sound whenever you make a left turn (which the dealership says is a "Normal Event.") The fuel pump is noisy! Buy a Toyota Sienna and you'll be much happier with it!

This is the best vehicle I have owned from Mercedes to previous Volvos to Cadillacs. Winter and rain are its breakfast. Reliability has been outstanding.

Review

We purchased this car used. It had 6K miles on it, and had been used as a rental. We bought it at significant savings, and because it had been used for part of the year, we were able to get the "extended warranty" for certified used cars. We have never had to invoke any warranty repair. The car has performed beautifully. The mileage is impressive for such a large car. Plenty of pick up to be had without the Turbo. Having previously driven a compact car, I can tell you I had no trouble adjusting to this one. It is easy to maneuver.
