Great T5!!
By jeffandr100 on


2002 Volvo V70 T5 Fwd 4dr Wagon (2.3L 5cyl Turbo 5M)


Sport trimmed seats were definitely
appreciated in the T5 as the side
bolsters are much better than the
standard seats (just take a curve
quickly in a v70 with standard seats
and compare). 17" rims/tires were a
very decent deal for $500 extra
(compare to buying this aftermarket).
Safety features much appreciated.
Dynamic stability control was a must
when I made this purchase, great for
peace of mind in wet driving.
Seemingly very stable, stiff chassis.
Wife loves it.

Best Features

Really supportive, comfortable seats, great visibility out the front, very good to rear/sides. Acceleration is very good, geartronic shifting is very useful when driving in moutains. Great handling tradeoff between every day non-harshness and crisp, responsive handling/ride.

Worst Features

Non-proprietary CD changer interface, want removeable MP3 (eg iPod), but proprietary changer interface makes it impossible. Would have purchased integrated power window shades. Prefer similar HP/torque V6/V8. Why is 3rd row seat only for kids over 55lbs (why no booster seats)?
