Review of the 2004 Volvo XC70

  • A viable alternative for those who need an all-weather wagon but don't want the bulk and poor handling of most SUVs.

    Versatile all-wheel drive, superb comfort, extensive array of safety equipment, solid construction, excellent brakes.

  • Cons

    High price, lacks the true off-road capability of an SUV, odd control placement.

    The XC70 remains unchanged except for the addition of bi-xenon headlights to the options list and a revised steering system.

Do not buy this car

Vehicle: 2004 Volvo XC70 AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)

i own an 850@450,000 km. needed 2nd car, found a 2004 XC70@65,000 from Volvo dealership. thinking this is going to be great. <one year goes . Transmission, ABS, Anit-Skid Control, Speed sensor, ABS sensor. All had problems at best. Sounds expensive to fix .you are right. More than once it scared the crap out of me. ie: in an intersection when the ABS engaged while i was trying to drive. kids were in the car. got almost nothing on a trade for a Honda . This is a computer on wheels. the computer is in the engine compartment so it overheats. who knows. There were many electrical issues. I once honked the horn with cruise control button. not the same quality as pre 1998. it almost killed me.

Vehicle: 2004 Volvo XC70 AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)

I recently was lucky enough to find a 2004 Volvo XC70 2.5T AWD with only 71K miles , fully loaded and in near mint condition. I have driven Volvos in the past and have wanted another one for years, the XC70 has been on my wish list since that model became available. I was truly amazed by the fact that it handles like a sports car but has the practicality of a station wagon. It handles like a dream on bad roads and gets amazing fuel mileage for this type of vehicle. I recently took it on a road trip and got 31 mpg with the a/c on and driving 75 mph. It is obvious that the former owner took very good care of the vehicle so I was very lucky to find it.




What a great car

I was looking for a decent used AWD car for the winter. I purchased this XC70 and I'm totally blown away. I like this 2004 XC70 better than my New 2009 Honda accord. Wish i had bought a volvo sooner..XC70 wagon is a great addition..

Great car

Vehicle: 2004 Volvo XC70 AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)

Bought it used with 92kmiles. This car is probably the best I have owned (VW, BMW, Toyota, Honda and Infiniti). The key is that it is a car that can be everything (sports car, station wagon, SUV, etc.). It drive fantastic and gives you a great sense of comfort and safety. It grips the road and goes. In the big snowstorm we just had, it sped forward regardless of the amount of snow on the road.




I"d buy another one !

Overall good solid vehicle. I went from a mercedes to this volvo. Volvo is more comfortable for my commute and more practical for all those trips to costo and the nursery and the vet.

Beware of the bills

Vehicle: 2004 Volvo XC70 AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)

The Xc-70 has been a very expensive car to repair with many part failures conveniently occurring right after warranty expiration. Dealer promised to cover but then reneged. Will never deal with Volvo again. Brakes on car are poor full replacement every 30K miles. Would expect more from the safest car in the world. Many other cars that are quieter, better mileage and overall more reliable than this. Deeply disgusted
