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.
Front seats, integrated child seats, rear rumble seats, safety equipment, park assist, integrated electronics.
Reduce part prices. $60 for dealer-only wiper blades are an affront to customers. Make the 2.5 turbo available with stick shift.
