2002 Volvo V70 2.4 Fwd 4dr Wagon (2.4L 5cyl 5M)

Review

We've had the non turbo automatic version for 1.5 years. Its a very smooth touring car, I think its the best wagon available at a near reasonable price. Quite comfortable although the seats are only OK, those in my other 3 European cars all fit me better (tall/slim). Overall its been an excellent reliable car with just a few minor design issues.

Favorite Features

The superb automatic trans makes even my non-turbo very peppy around town, OK on highway. In summer with AC I averaged 30 mpg at 79 on the cruise (regular gas works fine despite the manual).

Suggested Improvements

Suspension should be firmer to reduce wallowing. All controls need better feel. Interior plasticy for the price, every time you close the door the handle groans. Given Volvo's safe reputation, I'm surprised at the minimal visibility and dim backup lighting.
