2001 Volvo V70 2.4M Fwd 4dr Wagon (2.4L 5cyl 5M)
My vehicle has the standard five cyl. non turbo engine. I purchased the car new. I really like this car. It is stylish, it's been reliable, and it gets good gas economy for its size. It runs very well on mid-grad gasoline, runs very smoothly on premium, and runs OK on regular (no pinging, but much less zip). The car is heavy, so acceleration is not the best but is adequate. Get the turbo if you want to take off in a hurry. My biggest complaint is the lack of Volvo dealers available to service the car. Also,there are some high tech features that become expensive to fix. Even small items are expensive as the parts sources are limited, making trim and accessories expensive.
Styling, handling, and cargo area. With the back seats folded down, there is a lot of room to haul stuff. Gas mileage is also a plus 21/30 city/highway.
