Review of the 2004 Volvo V70

  • Comfortable, safe and roomier than most other luxury-brand wagons in its price range, the V70 is a smart choice in family transportation. Just be sure to take it easy on the options.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Superb comfort, wide variety of safety and luxury features, balanced ride and handling characteristics, available all-wheel drive.

  • Cons

    Gets expensive when you start adding options, tight rear legroom, turbo lag and torque steer in T5 model.

  • What's New for 2004

    Last year's 2.4T model is now the 2.5T, with the same 208-horsepower engine as the AWD model. New option packages for the 2.5T include Convenience and Special Titanium trim packages -- both bundle a wide variety of desirable features, but the latter includes distinctive exterior cosmetic touches as well. Finally, bi-xenon headlights are now optional while the top-line Dolby audio system has been upgraded with more speakers and greater amplification.

Nice car

Hard to find parts out of the dealer,part to expensive. Avoid unnecessary and expensive dealer service. Their support is less than desirable.

Actually I got some problems with my car only one week after purchasing it. I had to leave it at my local workshop. But since then everything has been working fine. I really feel that this is a good car. It drives very quiet, the design is nice, etc. Volvo is definitely quality.




Top-notch vehicle

Vehicle: 2004 Volvo V70 2.4 Fwd 4dr Wagon (2.4L 5cyl 5M)

Understated sophistication, solid performance, good value. Well-engineered, many thoughtful amenities, excellent fit and finish. I've put 6,000 miles on it so far with no problems. A pleasure to own and drive. Not quite the space of my former minivan, but far superior in every other respect.




Great wagon

Great wagon. Very comfortable, fun for the kids sitting in the 3rd row.




Love my volvo

When our CPO 2001 V70 was totaled last May, we didn't think twice about replacing it with another one...this time brand new! We love the comfort, luxury, and style of the V70. Although not a powerhouse, the engine is strong in midrange power, and the smooth auto transmission is a perfect match for the powerband. The kids love the 3rd row jump seats, and we use the SUV-like cargo capacity regularly. Why would anyone spend $30,000+ on an ungainly, ill-handling SUV when they could have a sporty, fine handling luxury wagon?




Excellent
