I used to own the 99V70R and traded it for the 2004. What a difference! Finally, volvo improved on the turbo lag, braking and handling that plagued the earlier version of the R. Athough, my 99 R was still worlds above most every sedan and every wagon on the market at the time. Love the feel of the AWD in hard cornering moving the torque from wheel to wheel through the corners! Awesome!
AWD, adjustable chassis, braking. The absolute best is spanking some clown in their "sports car" with a wagon. What a laugh! especially if they are on a date with their gal.
