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


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.

2006 Volvo V70 2.5T 4dr Wagon (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

After 12 months, still impressed. Purchased after extensive research and test drives of several brands in a quest for a wagon-- closest competitors were Mazda6, Audi and BMW 3 series wagons. (BMW 3 series wagons impossible to find, plus dealers not helpful.) Gas mileage has actually improved over time to about 22 mpg around town-- dealer recommended using Chevron regular grade and it has performed well. Brake check valve and outside mirror glass replaced under warranty right after delivery. Otherwise trouble-free. Dealer/service has been great.


Best Features

Safety engineered in. BOTH front seats have a wide range of adjustments. Wife and I both have back issues, yet find the seats wonderful-- able to enjoy long days driving on a trip to Texas. Controls and instruments clear and well laid out. Small details show careful engineering.


Worst Features

wheel wells intrude into front foot space. turning circle should be smaller.

2006 Volvo V70 R 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

Can't be beat; it took a long time to find the manual transmission I wanted, but it was worth the wait. . I've got a big dog and love to have a little fun while driving her around: the Volvo simply wins by default!


Best Features

Acceleration, front seats, premium stereo w/ sub-woofer, Atacama leather, volume for critters and cargo...


Worst Features

high beams not up to snuff; turning radius poor, but not as poor as nissans I have owned.

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


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.
