2004 Volvo V70 R 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

It's a great car and a great highway cruiser but ditch the stock tires which only last 15K and get some pilots. I had an audi allroad before which had better build quality but the v70r seats are the best in the industry and the mileage is much better here. the ride is rough.


Favorite Features

seats, excelleration, mileage


Suggested Improvements

ditch the blue dashboard and add rear lit instruments.

2004 Volvo V70 R 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

This car has had twice as many problems in three years than all of the other cars I have owned combined. Sticky valve,tires rubbing (which Volvo says is normal),squels in rain,brakes squel,transmission hesitation, numerous software fixes..... Volvo service is horrible. You have to prove over and over to them that there is a problem but they just don't want to do warranty work. The turning radius is just slightly better than an air craft carrier. The horsepower numbers for the automatic are not even close to advertised. I regret ever taking a chance on this vehicle and I will never buy Volvo again.


Favorite Features

Comfortable seats,good handling,AWD

Review

Full-size comfort, sports car handling, safety to the nth degree, gorgeous at the curb and twice as beatiful accelerating from a dead stop. this car handles like a dream, is comfortable, while being nimble AND stable. really a great performance ride with maximum comfort and that great cop-proof volvo cache (yes, we really do fly below the radar). this is my 5th volvo, and far and away my favorite. fun, safe, comfortable, and gorgeous. no complaints on maintenance or ergonomics. all around a fantastic car.


Favorite Features

handling. fast, nimble, glued-to-the- road, yet comfortable. the adjustable suspension is amazing and really works.


Suggested Improvements

um. uh. i'm sure there's something. umm...

Review

3rd Volvo wagon and this is the best one yet. Sure I've had a few minor issues, but the dealer quickly repaired all. Wish I had gotten the 6 spd for the full 300 hp car is rated for, but 245hp in 1st & 2nd is still adequate and it flies on the freeway. Very comfy front seats, great stock stereo, AWD safety and I avg about 22mpg around town and 25-28mpg on trips. Very Refined car, a nicer dashboard is about the only thing I would want along with a better turning radius.


Favorite Features

Power, front seats, stereo, AWD, did I say it FLYS!!


Suggested Improvements

Redo the dashboard and improve the turning radius. Make the AWD system a true 50/50 not front wheel drive biased. Better front lights ala BMW. Reclining/adjustable rear seats for more legroom/less cargo space.

Review

Fun Wagon. Quick, fast with 155 mph top end. Handles great. Functional. A great looking sleeper car. Great seats. Many a parking valet has said cool wagon, if you need a wagon this is the way to go. Automatic is not as quick as manual. Volvo should not have decreased torque. Plus its safe since it's a Volvo.


Favorite Features

Great handling car. Looks great in black. With blacked out tinted rear windows the kids call it the Darth Vader car. Rims are one of the best looking in industry. Great steering wheel.


Suggested Improvements

Volvo fixed the two things I did not like on the 2004 car. No rear parking assist (now available) and 4 disc CD player (now 6 disc). The turning radis is wide and the tires rub on tight turns. Lights do not illuminate the road far enough in front of car, lights are bright but directed down.
