2006 Volvo V70 Wagon 2.4 4dr Wagon (2.4L 5cyl 5M)


Review

Purchased pre-owned to replace XC90 which died. Low mileage example, super clean. Had to have the extra room afforded, but just couldn't handle the minor issues over the two months of ownership. Drove 6000 miles in those two months with dash and dash VIN rattle. Incredibly rough ride for a "luxury" wagon. Traded to a 4Runner and it has a smoother ride. After only two months simply had to give up and eat the depreciation. I avg 35,000 miles/yr.


Best Features

Gas mileage was exceptional, averaged 24/25 with majority of highway at 80.


Worst Features

Ride comfort was horrible. Audio nuances, which I was accustomed to in my XC90 were even worse in the V70. No legroom in back seat.

2006 Volvo V70 Wagon 2.4 4dr Wagon (2.4L 5cyl 5M)


Review

This is the first Volvo I have owned and I have never regretted buying it. The safety features offer peace of mind. The car's performance is very good and reliability is way above average. I have literally had nothing to do but scheduled maintenance + change 2 tires in 3 years. Legroom in the rear seat is cramped a bit for larger adults but teens and kids fit great. The integrated safety seats saved us about $400 because we didn't have to buy new baby seats once our boys hit 3 yrs old. I am contemplating a new XC70 now.


Best Features

Heated seats, climate control, seat memory, trip computer, cargo space


Worst Features

Deciphering the radio and how to program it was beyond my two university degrees to figure out. The roof rack should be standard equipment.

2006 Volvo V70 Wagon 2.4 4dr Wagon (2.4L 5cyl 5M)


Review

This is my 4th Volvo and one of my favorites - why? Supportive comfort in front seats, handling control around corners is very good, driveability and great gas mileage. City average 28 and Highway 32. Sound system is very good, really like the system health displays. Husband is very tall and enjoys the ride; great cargo space. Back seats are just okay for adults, better for kids. Only issue in 2.5 years and 33K miles is a small rattle in the driver dash sometimes. Love this car.


Best Features

Front seats, driveability, better MPG than most hybrids!


Worst Features

Nothing really

Review

We bought our red stick shift V70 last summer, and are very pleased with it. If you want a 7 passenger vehicle (we got the rear rumble seat) without having to drive a huge SUV or minivan, this is it. It's not tremendously sporty, but has adequate pickup and corners well. It's also very comfortable for long drives. Service and parts are very expensive.


Best Features

Front seats, integrated child seats, rear rumble seats, safety equipment, park assist, integrated electronics.


Worst Features

Reduce part prices. $60 for dealer-only wiper blades are an affront to customers. Make the 2.5 turbo available with stick shift.

Review

Bought this "last year" model at considerable savings, really not much more than "non premium" cars we considered. I now understand why people buy luxury automobiles. This car is incredibly smooth, quiet, and comfortable. The leather seating is superb and the vehicle feels very solid in its construction. Cars and trucks passing by produce hardly any noise in the cabin, unlike the SUV we traded in, where we had to shout to be heard. The Volvo safety features also make it a great purchase.


Best Features

Leather seating, multi-position seat memory, real wood on dashboard, attractive styling, Titanium color.


Worst Features

Find a way to make the Sirius radio installation more affordable.
