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


Owned V70R automatic (not manual, though the web form does not allow any other designation) for a week. Gave up 2003 Passat Wagon GLS 5 speed, which I loved, to get more room so we could seat all 6 in our family. Built in booster seats are great. Very fun to drive, seats extremely comfortable. You can select different settings for suspension depending on whether you want comfort or want to race. This is a lot of car for the money. Reliability remains to be seen.

Best Features

Fantastic engine. AWD. Safety built in from the ground up. Superb handling. Available with 3rd row seat for those who don't want SUV or minivan. Reasonable gas mileage given the performance.

Worst Features

1. Get better lights: headlights (HID) are disappointing, not as good as standard halogens. 2. Could use a little more road feel in steering (my lowly Passat wagon was better). 3. Radio unecessarily complex. 4. Turning radius of a barge.
