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


Review

Finally bought it.Always liked the XC70.My Wife and son were in an MVA recently in her Volvo S40 with an SUV and the S40 held up amazingly.Any other car in the S40 class would have yielded far more severe injuries. Volvo's safety is first class. We chose to replace the S40 with another Volvo, more family practical vehicle. As much as I enjoy my SUV, SUV's cannot compete with the XC70.Rides the way we all wish SUV's should.Accelerates, brakes& corners like many sedans.Feels as comfortable as many luxury vehicles.Great driving experience.And knowing that my wife and son are in one of the safest vehicles on the road, the best feeling. No SUV rollovers.


Favorite Features

Comfort, every safety feature volvo incorporated into this vehicle, ground clearance, AWD, auto windshield wipers are cool, cargo space with wagon, look in and out, geartronic, rear seat vents, memory seats, color, 26 mpg, bought demo model and got incredible price with 5K mile.


Suggested Improvements

Rear window release, door lock in cargo area like my Ford Explorer, wish doors auto locked at 5mph (surprised with volvo emphasis on safety they don't have it), better center console, compass,

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.
