2004 Volvo V70 Wagon T5 Fwd 4dr Wagon (2.3L 5cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

This is my 3rd Volvo wagon. They just
keep getting better and better! This
model has a much nicer ride, although
you give up a little on the turning
radius. Love the turbo...not just a
mom car! LOL Don't buy until you
try!!!


Worst Features

Better turning radius!!!

Review

I was brousing this site and read the
Edwards road test review of a loaded T5
and thought they were talking about a
differant car. Ours is now 2 1/2 years
old and as tight as new, with ZERO
rattles, ZERO poor fits and no dust
intrusion whatsoever over our many dirt
driveways. The brakes are firm and
linear, the power strong and the
mileage good. I don't know what you
drove, but it sounds like a wreck.
And as for the howling tires, did
you check the pressure?


Best Features

I achieved 29.2 MPG on a 100 mile trip with 4 of us and packed with camping gear driving the coast of northern CA. This included a stint with some new overpowered SUV hounding me. I got tired of this and left it behind without so much as squeeking the tires.


Worst Features

The 5 cylinder sounds thrashy and has a lot of turbo lag. You need to learn to work the lag for performance driving. Its out of character with a car that is otherwise so fast, smooth and comfortable. A strong hybrid would be interesting.

Review

The V70 T5 excel in every automotive
arena. The 247-hp Turbo is a beast on
the highway- beating many, many, many
cars. Adding the GearTronic will
result the winning combination of
performance, fun and automotive
enjoyment. Fuel economy is excellent-
averaging only at 10.5L/100km. Build
quality, safety and reliabiliy is
undoubtly excellent. The seats are the
best you can ever find in the universe.
Versatile and agile, the V70 is the
Einstein of scientists and the
Kristanna Loken of actresses.


Best Features

Seats, the engine, cargo cover, cargo net, GearTronic, steering wheel mounted controls, heated seats, moonroof....etc.


Worst Features

If I was appointed to build the V70 by Volvo, I would put in a V6. The V5 is fast, furious and economical, but a V6 feels smoother for accelerations. Better sound system would be favourable.
