2006 Volvo XC70 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)

Review

From the moment I drove the car off the lot new there was a thump in the rear end. It took 18 months to get the problem corrected. At 32,000 miles something internally damaged the engine head, and it needed replacement. It was repaired under warranty, but the car simply does not perform like it did prior to the problem. This all happened even after being religous about meeting service and oil change intervals, etc. I love the look of the car inside and out but the Volvo quality and service have alot to be desired. I say this after having six Volvos over the last 20+ years, the first four running over 100,000 miles with few problems. The last two (both XC70) with nothing but problems.

Favorite Features

Style, Volvo safety, go anywhere AWD, and seat comfort. back-up sensing devise. Large sideview mirrors. Lots of storage pockets. Geartronic transmission.

Suggested Improvements

Chews through tires, lucky to get 20- 25000 miles on set of $400 a piece Pirelli tires. Automatic door locks. Audible remote door lock. Loss the turbo lag for quicker accelleration. Better dealer service.
