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

Review

After 3900 miles, with summer and winter tires, car is broken in and mpg is right up there as advertised. Excellent acceleration in all 6 gears (at least below 100 mph - I haven't had it up into triple digit land). Seats are outstanding providing you don't need to lose weight, they are firmly bolstered. Sport mode 4C is excellent, comfort good for long hails on the interstates or if you have back seat passengers. Braking, overall handling dry, wet, crosswinds, all excellent.

Favorite Features

Suspension, brakes, good power in all gears, flat torque curve, smooth shifting, optional sound system also excellent.

Suggested Improvements

Cup holder gets in way of shifting if tall bottles put in it. Right now there are no aftermarket wheels, car definitely needs winter/summer tires and changing is easier with two sets of wheels, but OEM Phaetons are stylish and priced reasonably.
