My 2001V70 T5M
By Phil Gilmore on 12/13/03 00:00 AM (PST)

Vehicle

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

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?

Perfect SUV Alternative; Great Quality
By mobile36602 on 12/06/03 00:00 AM (PST)

Vehicle

2004 Volvo V70 Wagon 2.5T Fwd 4dr Wagon (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)

Review

Incredible seat comfort, drive 10-12 hours without stiffness/fatigue. Performance excellent. Runs well on regular without pinging but using premium fuel enhances performance noticeably. Build quality superb...car delivered with zero defects, fit/finish is world class. Vehicle feels solid, safe, and very controllable in inclement weather and at high speeds. Fuel economy 19 city/24 mpg highway. Rain sensor wipers alleviate need for constant wiper speed adjustment. Best vehicle I have ever had. Great alternative for luxury car buyers who want high quality,slick styling, solidity, and comfort without the stigma of pretentiousness of a BMW or Mercedes.

Great drive

Vehicle

2004 Volvo V70 Wagon 2.5T Fwd 4dr Wagon (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)

Review

Excellent car. Previous car was Passat Wagon. Although we like manual transmission of Passat (manual not available with higher output engine) the 2.5t is fun to drive and has a comfortable ride on the highway as well. Plenty of room with 3rd row seat.

Comfortable Highway Cruiser
By volvo-driver on 11/29/03 00:00 AM (PST)

Vehicle

2004 Volvo V70 Wagon 2.5T Fwd 4dr Wagon (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)

Review

The vehicle is very comfortable for highway driving. The seats are superb. There is plenty of room and I get about 26 mpg. The engine gives acceptable performance in the city and highway. The steering is very accurate and nicely weighted for the highway. In the city the steering feels a bit sluggish. Highway handling is very nice. I the city it's a little soft. The brakes, although they work well in a hard stop, make it difficult to modulate smoothly to a stop.

An incredible machine!

Vehicle

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

Review

The Volvo V70 combines the fun and precision of a European sports sedan and the functionality of a SUV. Everything in Volvo literature and that the salespeople stated is true. This is one fine automobile.

Bring on the snow!
By jamm66 on 11/03/03 00:00 AM (PST)

Vehicle

2004 Volvo V70 Wagon 2.5T AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)

Review

3rd Volvo, very happy so far. Interior takes a little getting used to, much different than older wagons. Stereo is wonderful, instrumentation plain but perfect, great ergonomic positioning. I have sport seats and highly recommend them, super comfortable, but aren't all Volvo seats? Wagon is as versatile as ever, superb room and hauling capacity. 2.5T engine is a torque monster! Big improvement over the 2.4 in every area but fuel economy. GREAT ENGINE! The Haldex system is best in class. Effortless handling of snow and muck here in VT.

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

Review

i drove this car daily to work and use it to haul our dogs and house and yard needs and purchased. we have never had problem. recently another driver hit our car from the front and did quite a bit of damage. no one was hurt and we hardly felt the crash. the only change i would make to this car is to make the shoulder belt adjustable. for shorter people the belt hits right up against the neck.

Three shortcomings on 2004 Volvo V70
By Florida tennisplayer on 09/03/03 00:00 AM (PDT)

Vehicle

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

Review

My Volvo V70's worst, and potentially dangerous feature, is the tilt of the windshield. The top of the windshield is reflected in the window, making it very, very difficult to see the road when the sun hits the windshield at a certain angle. Second worst feature is the curve of the hood which does not permit the driver to see where the car ends. The hood just disappears and you have no idea how much room there is between the front of the car (or the right hand side of the car) and a wall or other object. These two items represent very poor design. Thirdly, on several occasions the car doors locked accidentally while driving.

This Car Rocks
By KevinLeungPhD on 07/22/03 00:00 AM (PDT)

Vehicle

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

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.
