I have a 2 year old, and safety was
the primary reason for selecting a
V70. Very comfortable ride, especially
on extended trips. Never thought I
would every own a station wagon, but a
V70 is more than just a station
wagon. I never considered any other.
Have received a lot of compliments at
Confortable seats, excellent ride,
great sound system, good mileage
No waste baskets in the rear. Too much
of the plastic look on controls. Clock
should be moved to center dash. Only
driver can see the time and temp on
driver side only.
I've owned this car for 13 months and
had put 15500 miles on it thus far. It
is by far the most comfortable car I've
owned. I've driven it on several 11
hour trips without incurring my usual
backache. (which is what I would of had
with all the other cars I've owned.)
overall I love this car but it hasn't
been without its problems. nothing
serious mind you but I've been to the
dealer for repairs 3 times in 12 months.
most comfortable seats in any car I've
ever sat in ,great sounding stereo
system, large cargo capacity, great
fuel economy, great responsive engine ,
totally redo the radio controls, the
actual ones on the face of the radio
are too cumbersome to use. too many
squeaks and rattles.lose the paper
element oil filter design.
Since our family has expanded to 2
children we were looking for a safe
family vehicle and opted for a Volvo
Wagon instead of the typical SUV. Our
V70 feels solid/safe, looks classy,
and drives great!
Like the steering wheel controls as
well as the child safety features that
allow to easily attach our 2 child car
seats. Also like the integrated
booster seats for when the kids get
older. Rear area storage is just as
big as a typical SUV.
Be nice if there was a cover where the
2 drink holders are. Would like the
base model to have a bit more power.
I've had this car for approx 8 months
and it has been in the shop six
times. Several times for a squeaking
front end (never fixed), a burned out
power lock motor, a bad power window
motor and a leaking power steering
pump. What's next. This is the first
car I've owned that is not Japanese.
What a mistake. Next time I'll buy a
