Gas Hog! Like an SUV
By AndyH on
Vehicle2006 Volvo V70 2.5T 4dr Wagon (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)
ReviewThis is a solid, quality and well appointed car. Feels like it is worth the money and is comfortable to drive. Great capacity and a steady family hauler. However, the real world fuel economy is far worse than claimed by Volvo. If you care about emissions and fuel economy you should not buy this car. I am not sure how Volvo manages to fool EPA ratings but the real world fuel consumption is more like an SUV than a sedan or wagon. I would not buy again due to this.
Best FeaturesExterior looks, comfort and solid build.
Worst FeaturesImprove fuel economy or advertise realistic numbers so consumers can make educated choices. The Volvo mechanics know that these things suck gas, so marketing has missed the message.
