Vehicle2000 Volvo V70 R Turbo 4dr Wagon AWD
ReviewWonderful wagon, very fast and
comfortable. Experience has been mostly
positive but car is not without
shortcomings. Stiff suspension makes
around town driving an exercise in
patience. Numerous rattles throughout
the interior make it necessary to crank
the stereo. Once on the highway
however, the car is very quiet. Dealer
feels the nature of being a wagon,
coupled with the amount of aluminum
used in the build results in chassis
flex which causes all the rattling.
Another disappointment is the fuel
economy. A combination of city/highway
miles with a conservative driving style
nets about 19 mpg.
Best FeaturesSafety features - I feel there is no better vehicle for avoiding and surving accidents than a Volvo. AWD is a pleasure and makes winter driving a breeze. Sound system is great but the disc changer has broken twice requiring an entire stereo replacement by the dealer.
Worst FeaturesObviously, the interior noise needs to be addressed. Specifically, our rear hatch has rattled since receiving the car. Approximately six attempts by the dealer to fix have been unsuccessful.
