04 XC70 - OK so far
By mpurc on
Vehicle2004 Volvo XC70 AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)
ReviewTraded in Pathfinder for more quiet and
something easier to get in and out of.
Surprised to find XC wider and longer
than PF when going into garage for the
first time. Steering takes getting
used to. Tranny rough at slow speeds
in neighborhood (auto and manual).
Excellent hiway car. Adequate power.
Still playing with driving position -
comfortable/heated seats a boon to a
bad back. Getting 21 to 23 mpg.
Best FeaturesExterior design. Interior/gauges layout. Quiet (except for whistle - see below). Smooth ride, but will have to wait for tire replacement time to really judge. Seats. Cargo space. Carpet mats throughout.
Worst FeaturesKill the switchblade key-fob! Want built-in satellite radio! Mystery whistling noise (sunroof? hvac vents?) Sound system (radio,tape,CD)has intermittent drop-out (loose wiring? short?) Why no compass?
