An excellent family car
By Christopher on
2006 Volvo V70 2.4 4dr Wagon (2.4L 5cyl 5M)
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.
Heated seats, climate control, seat memory, trip computer, cargo space
Deciphering the radio and how to program it was beyond my two university degrees to figure out. The roof rack should be standard equipment.
