2005 Volvo V70 2.4 4dr Wagon (2.4L 5cyl 5M)


I only have 300 miles on my 2004 V70 2.4. Thus far I have no complaints. I only gave this car 9 points in my review, as I am not not comfortable giving anything 10's the whole way through. This is a much better vehicle than I had expected. Even the base engine (auto tranny BTW), handles very well for us. Carrying 5 people, it seems to move pretty well too. I have not had any problems with acceleration. The V70's fit and finish are top notch. The climate control and air filtration system work superbly. There seems to be more rear passenger room than we had in our 1999 Ford Explorer, with comparable usable cargo area. While shopping for this model, we also looked at the Dodge Magnum and Volkswagen Passat Wagon TDI seriously, and I have no regrets. This is a very well put together vehicle.

Best Features

Climate Control and filtration. Driving comfort and positioning. Solid feel of the vehicle. Gas mileage (approx 30 MPG on highway).

Worst Features

In dash CD changer and auto dimming mirror as standard options.
