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

Review

We've been looking for a good-looking
SUVs but without the unnecessary bulk
of most major SUVs. We traded one of
our cars (AUDI A4 Quattro) for this new
XC70 Volvo. We also considered the
Lexus R330 and Volvo XC90. We found
these latter two SUVs to be too
tall/high for our "rescued" South
Russian Sheepdog to jump in and out of
the vehicle. We chose the XC70 because
he is able to recline comfortably while
in the car. The XC70's safety features
also made us choose it over the Lexus
R330. We would have chosen the XC90 but
besides the "height" situation, we also
found it a little "too feminine" looking
:) Although I've seen quite a few women
driving the XC70 here in the LA area.

Best Features

SAFETY, EXTERIOR FINISH, COMFORT, INTERIOR SPACE, AND IT'S REMARKABLE EASE OF DRIVE DESPITE OF IT'S SIZE---I actually prefer the driving quality on our new Volvo XC70 over our AUDI A4 quattro.

Worst Features

FUEL ECONOMY, Automatic locking door, ease of use of the entertainment/music controls/functions, parking voice/warning assistance especially when parallel parking-should be a standard feature considering the length of this vehicle
