2004 Volvo V70 2.4 Fwd 4dr Wagon (2.4L 5cyl 5M)
Review
The 2004 V70 (2.4L) is our third Volvo wagon (following a 1990 240 and a 2000 V70.) Exterior styling, cabin ventillation and the center console are all improved. The ride is smoother, more comfortable. Front legroom gains about an inch. Fuel economy is slightly better. And Volvo finally got cupholders right. However, the turning circle gains about 6 feet. Some interior dimensions are smaller. Window rollers are on a hair-trigger. And the decent-sounding stereo has absurdly difficult controls. The car continues to offer exceptional comfort and safety design, but Volvo needs to fix a few more details.
Favorite Features
Comfortable seats, ample cargo room, safety features (lots of airbags, anti- whiplash seats, superior head restraints, relatively short braking distance). Easy rear seat fold-down.
Suggested Improvements
Make DSTC (skid protection) standard. Add radio station preset buttons (and offer that wonderful HU-803 stereo in ALL cars). Bring back the 2000- style fan control (with AUTO setting). Offer a diesel engine again.
