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

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
