Solid, safe, comforable Swede

Vehicle2007 Volvo V70 2.4 4dr Wagon (2.4L 5cyl 5M)
ReviewPurchased this month with 33,400 miles. 2.4L base engine. I am returning to Volvo after Mercedes and Acura and purchased this car because of the seat comfort, overall safety and solid highway ride. I spend 22,00 miles a year on the highway so comfort is a priority. The seat is sublime, by far the best of any car I have owned, including past Volvo's. Speed sensitive steering makes it easy around town, heavy on the highway. Love the classic styling. No anxiety on I-95 in the rain, between trucks. The 2.4L base engine is underpowered, no C240 or TSX for sure. With premium fuel acceleration is acceptable. Frankly, I can see having this car for 300,000 miles.
Best FeaturesThe seat. Excellent visibility. Powerful brakes. Quiet highway ride. Crash worthiness. Interior ergonomics: simple and straightforward. Elegant, timeless styling.
Worst FeaturesTighter suspension. Less brake dust! (Yikes!) Sunglass holder in center console.
