'02 2.4 ASR in WDC
By KKC&JLC on
Vehicle
2002 Volvo V70 2.4 Fwd 4dr Wagon (2.4L 5cyl 5M)
Review
Wife's car - has 25K miles. Bought new in early '03 before baby arrived (needed safer vehicle w/more cargo space); got great deal w/yr end clearance - chose over preowned '01 V70 for same price, 13K miles, & less options. Premium & Touring packages - Leather, sunroof, 16"alloys, 3rd seat, laminated glass . . . great car overall. Looks like the NHTSA finally crash tested the V70 for frontal and side impacts - 5 stars all the way around! Only problem thus far has been a burned out power lock motor in rear door (under warranty) and a burned out headlight (replaced myself). Will look at an XC90 next for more space . . . but will wait until the bugs are worked out from the first few yr
Favorite Features
Decent handling for a heavy car. Adequate power w/base engine. Extremely comfy seats w/ very supportive headrests (great when in rear end collision). Sporty looks for a wagon (especially w/16" wheels). Very sturdy at hi spds. Great brakes. Safety features - curtain bags, WHIPS, SIPS.
Suggested Improvements
More room in the rear seats - with baby seat in the middle, passengers have tough time getting their seat belts latched. Could use more leg room too. Only problem we've had thus far is a burned out power lock motor in rear door (under warranty) and a burned out headlight (replaced myself).
