This replaces out 1991 240 wagon with 230k miles on it, purchased new. What a difference, yet not a surprise with the detail and quality. In a nutshell, I feel safe and secure. Average milage 26.5 mpg to date. Comfortable, elegant, and well designed, though it may take getting use to all the features. Study the manual first to know about the purpose and layout. Then appreciate the details.
Comfort, solid feel, Volvo quality.
2.4 acceleration is deliberate. Although compared to the 108 HP of the 240, the V70's 168 is a dream.
