Fabulous and Fun V70
By MaineTrees on


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


After 4 years and 50K+ miles I still love this car. It is a joy to drive. Seat comfort is superb. I can drive for hours with no back ache. Braking system is superb. This is the non-turbo model and has plenty of pep with the 5 speed auto transmission. 32 MPG highway at 70 mph. About 22-23 in the city. Repairs and scheduled maint are expensive at the dealer!! Find a good independent garage and stick to the maintenance schedule. You will save lots of $$. Change the trans fluid every 40K miles, the claimed lifetime trans fluid interval is baloney. The cost of a new tranny will make you cry!

Best Features

Who would think a wagon would be fun to drive? This one really is. Love the seat comfort, interior design, brakes and safety features. These cars will easily run for 250k miles with proper maintenance. Rear door panels are a plastic like Saturns.

Worst Features

Driving position is low. Cannot see around any SUV at a light or stop sign.
