2003 Volvo V70 Wagon 2.4T Fwd 4dr Wagon (2.4L 5cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

Oh my. This is my third Volvo. For a 50 ton wagon it is tight. 207HP stock, in dash phone plus all the goodies. Top speed reported at 125 plus easy. Comfort 10+ Highway zip 10+ Love it.


Favorite Features

Class


Suggested Improvements

If you have kids and with legs or big visitors back seat no good. I am 6 foot sit back and maybe only 6/7 inches between my seat and rear seat.

Review

Overall, we are happy with the 2003 V70. The car handles very well, it is esthetically pleasing, gets good gas mileage, and has great storage. The main complaint is with a cold-start problem. The car would not start at temperatures below about 30 - 35F. Frustratingly ironic for a Swedish car. Left us stranded once. Eventually, Volvo tracked the problem down to a faulty engine control module after a few repair attempts. Since then, we've had no complaints. Would probably buy another.


Favorite Features

responsive handling, nice acceleration for a family wagon, comfortable on long trips


Suggested Improvements

reliability of the computer control modules evidently needs attention

Review

I have owned this car for about three months. It spends most of its time in the city, where it does very well. Where it really shines, however, is on the highway. We took a 2,000 mile trip and it was amazing - comfortable, smooth, quiet and fun to drive in the mountains. On the highway, I got 28 mpg. In town, it is closer to 16 mpg (all stop and go). The acceleration makes it fun to drive. The brakes are awesome. I would recommend this car to anyone looking for a solid, high-quality and versatile people and stuff mover (who doesn't want an SUV or minivan).


Favorite Features

Seating, acceleration, brakes, interior room, overall quality.


Suggested Improvements

More storage space around the driver's seat.

Review

I am a first time Volvo owner- previously I have had Acuras and been very satisfied. I was in the market for an SUV..but after looking at the V70 decided it really had everything I was looking for-versatility, styling, safety, and cargo space! Mine has the integrated booster seats-great idea. This car has the most comfortable seats I've ever known in a car-plus heated!! I can't wait to take it on vacation and camping!


Favorite Features

Seats, sound system is incredible, fun to drive, power when you need it.


Suggested Improvements

Place to store trash...rear window that would roll down.
