Not a soccer mom

Vehicle2005 Volvo V70 R 4dr Wagon (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)
ReviewAfter starting out looking at Volvo V70 Cross Country models and deciding they're dogs - real soccer mom cars - I went through a number of SUVs up to and including a 4Dr Ford F150 P/U. Then gas hit $2.50 and someone reccomended I check out a V70R. I didn't even know they existed. Once I checked them on line goodbye to V6s & V8s... Fortunately my dealer had a used S60R to test drive so I got a taste - and began the process of getting a V70R. Build quality seems terrific. Performace with the 6 speed is excellent. Gas mileage is 23+ at the speeds the car performs best. 'And talk about stealth. I even passed a state trooper and he never noticed. After all it's a Volvo wagon right? Cool!
Best FeaturesAll wheel drive. Outstanding stereo. Solid.
Worst FeaturesDarker tint on the windows.
