2005 Volvo V70 2.5T 4dr Wagon (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)
Review
We have an '03 V70 and liked it so much that we bought the '05. Car is solid, comfortable, and dependable. Normal services and no real problems yet through 62K miles. Does have electrical snafus -- at times the fuel gauge doesn't register fuel remaining, and when cold, the MPG and fuel remaining readings arbitrarily change between the 4 or so displays available. Wide turning radius on the 17" wheels -- larger than the '03 with 16" wheels. Smooth & light steering, but bumpier ride than the '03 due to the 225/45R17 tires I suppose. Engine is responsive and turbo gets car up to freeway speed quickly. Original Pirelli's still on -- probably replace at 70K.
Favorite Features
Good things include the interior comfort, fuel mileage (27mpg or so), smooth and quiet ride, and the many features inside.
Suggested Improvements
Bulbs burn out frequently, electrical problems mentioned.

I replaced the original Pirelli tires on my 2005 V70 after 140K. Just to let you know.
