10 Months later: XC70 Impressions
By whr on
Vehicle
2003 Volvo XC70 AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)
Review
Good car, superb engineering on seat fold-down method for use of full cargo area, driver door had an annoying rattle -- dealer fixed on warranty; poor design and material on console lid hinge...it broke quickly and cost $175 + installation to replace...dealer service tech installed wrong color (QC...?), causing another return trip and "discussion" with the service manager. Mileage around town isn't too impressive...about 15, but highway mileage improves significantly (25+), and it's fast on the open road. Overall we like it alot and have recommended to a friend who also bought one and loves his.
Favorite Features
Easy to use cargo area, great seat comfort, seat memory for multiple drivers, built-in kid booster seats are terrific and the kids love them. Tiptronic transmission is nice.
Suggested Improvements
A few more ponies, lower 1st gear in "standard automatic" mode so it isn't sluggish (this isn't a prob in manual mode). Firmer suspension (a little bit) and BMW style 3-mode Steptronic would be good, i.e., auto/sport-auto/manual shift.
