Gas Hog! Like an SUV

Vehicle

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

Review

This 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.

Favorite Features

Exterior looks, comfort and solid build.

Suggested Improvements

Improve 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.
