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


Review

I've had my XC70 2 months, & the more I drive it, the more I enjoy it. Excellent fit and finish. Great visibility, and very comfortable seating. I am surprised that there are not more of these on the road. This car is a keeper!


Favorite Features

seating, cargo capacity


Suggested Improvements

automatic door locking mechanism is the only thing I find this car lacking.

This is a truly great vehicle for my needs. I bought the car mostly for safety as we just started a family. But I also prefer the wagon to an SUV.This is a truly great vehicle for my needs.

Review

This car rides beautifully! We have the 3rd seat which is great when we have other kids in tow. The only thing I would like to see different is Volvo needs to build a similar model that is either a hybrid or gets better gas mileage. We do a majority of city driving and average 23 mpg. Also, noise level of ride is almost as comparable as an SUV, but we have the AWD.


Favorite Features

Comfort of ride.


Suggested Improvements

Noise level, make a smaller version that gets much better gas mileage or make a hybrid XC90!

Review

I love my volvo. I feel so safe driving it. I have two small children and they love our car two. When they have friends stay over we have the third row seating so extra seating room. It is great. The only thing I do not like about the car is the soccer mom look of the exterior. I wish the bumper was not wrapped in the plastic look either


Favorite Features

DVD we had added to the car. Also the child seats. I love that they are in the car so all I do when an adult rides in the back is lift the release and it is a normal seat again.


Suggested Improvements

Different head rests so that DVD screans can be installed in the head rest. Air conditioning to the third row seating. With an on and off switch.

Review

This is one incredible vehicle. Indiana to British Columbia via the Northwest and back through the Southwest; to Florida via North Carolina's Outer Banks and back; then round trip to Canada's Martitme Provinces and all this within 14 months; not a single problem 12,000 foot mountains and 118 degree deserts did not budge the engine heat indicator off of normal; gets 29.4 mpg @ 65 mph; superb seats; the turbo 5 more than matches any V8 ever owned (including the 60's powerhouses); it's like driving a Bradley Fighting Vehicle with agility and comfort.


Favorite Features

Seat comfort, pep and versatility.


Suggested Improvements

More intuitive radio controls; 1/2 inch more space between the gas and brake pedals; door lock button at the rear like Explorer; quicker operating electronic door locks like Mercedes.
