2003 Volvo XC70 AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)

Review

For the price of admission, one gets some of the finest automotive engineering available on the planet. The vehicle handles extremely well in all situations, visibility is excellent, performance is more than adequate and does it with an eye towards fuel economy. Seating comfort is excellent even for my large 6'2" frame. Controls are easy to see and logically placed for access. Yes, the radio controls are "quirky" and take some getting used to, especially as it relates to changing stations. Using the steering wheel mounted controls simplifies this task once you have preset the stations.

Favorite Features

The styling of the car stll catches my eye, while the solid feel makes it a joy to drive. The green color used for window tint is refreshing. Dark enough for those sunny days, yet not too dark for manuevering at night. The overall understated elegance is sheer joy.

Suggested Improvements

The cup holders up front are fine, but the rear ones could be improved upon to a great degree. For some reason Volvo has a hard time with the cup holder philosphy.
