2002 Volvo V70 Wagon 2.4T Fwd 4dr Wagon (2.4L 5cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

I have to say that I loved the car the moment I bought it. However once the warranty ran out the problems began. We now have to replace the radiator which has a slow leak. We have to now replace the steering rods and bushings.I have never had to replace steering rods at 57K miles on any of my past cars. There are a few other things that happened from day one that were never properly taken care of. I believe that Volvo should at least offer to help cover the expenses. Our local dealership has not been helpful at all.The Volvo cars of America has not been helpful as well.I bought the Volvo thinking that I would drive it forever but now I don't believe that will be the case!


Best Features

The car is incredibly comfortable on short and long trips. The design is really nice. The 2.4T has great power.


Worst Features

Improve the customer service. Improve the horsepower. Do not let Ford have any say in the design or safety issues.

2002 Volvo V70 Wagon 2.4T Fwd 4dr Wagon (2.4L 5cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

Outstanding overall quality. Only
required one minor warranty service in
first 18 months. Suprising fuel
economy for full sized vehicle. Neat
interior features for hauling dogs,
camping gear, etc. Integrated roof
rack makes it easy to customize to
carry toys. Highly recommended!!!


Worst Features

Could use a few more horses under the hood, but not a dog by any means.

A great looking, sporty, responsive

space for the grandkids and all
their "things".

Review

Get the Turbo
Get the Turbo
Get the Turbo!!!!!
I am 33 and was not ready for
a "family car", but my younger brother
just bought his second Volvo and
convinced me to check them out. I
drove the non turbo and the turbo
model - did I mention Get The Turbo?
I would suggest driving both models
to see for yourself. I also got the
upgraded 17" wheels. They look great,
handle awesome, and give it the sport
wagon look (But on rough roads can be a
little harsh). So far I have had it
for a month and still have a smile
everytime I drive it. I am hoping for a
long and supportive relationship with
Volvo.


Best Features

Turbo-Kicks in right away-No Lag. Abundance of Safety Features. Braking. Seats are extremely comfortable. Steering wheel controls. Fold Down Rear Seat. Style. Controls are thought out wheel.


Worst Features

Can't think of any right now.

Review

We were considering the Saab Wagon vs the Volvo V70 24T. The two were
very similar but after driving a Saab 93, we opted to try the Volvo. In the end,
we are very very happy. It drive incredibly well, has great pick up (you need
the turbo), and is very comfortable. I do miss some of the extras that were
standard on the Saab, butthe driving experience more than makes up for it.


Best Features

comfortable, great ride, great style
