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

Review

There is a bunch to like about the XC70. Great interior, comfort, safety, fit & finish & so on. The one piece that absolutely doesn't fit is the engine. The 5 cylinder is noisy and rough , simply inappropriate in a car that typically stickers out around $38K. Drop the drive train from my Acura TL-S into the Volvo and you have a home run. Why is Volvo married to that #$%&# 5 banger?

Favorite Features

Driver's position, transparent AWD, great highway driver.

Suggested Improvements

Besides the engine, rear seat leg room and "normal" radio controls (throw in a 6 CD changer while you're at it....)
