2002 Volvo V70 T5 Fwd 4dr Wagon (2.3L 5cyl Turbo 5M)

Review

Even with a few glitches, I'd rather drive this sporty European wagon than any of its bland Japanese or American competitors, and none of them can hold five kids. Bought used last winter. Had a few gremlins in front suspension, but local dealership did great job of diagnosing and fixing. No problems since then after 10k miles city driving. No complaints about dealer service, but not cheap. Car is fun to drive; handles beautifully on turns, accelerates quickly, and cruises smoothly at supra-legal highway speeds. Not that I drive like that. Big turning radius hasn't been an issue. Lots of features, marvelous seats, and a kickin' stereo make long drives a pleasure.

Favorite Features

Outruns everything in the school parking lot. Looks butch with 17-inch stock wheels and low-profile tires.

Suggested Improvements

No compass? Interior plastics are a bit hard compared to Japanese competition. Headrests not adjustable. Sunroof a tad noisy. Minor turbo lag. Steering effort somewhat high. All minor issues.
