Why buy an SUV?
By kiddie car pool dad on


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


Had to get a 7-seat vehicle for the school car pool, but wife hasn't yet figured out that I didn't get a T5 just for the nice seats. Bought used with 50K miles two weeks ago. This car has great power, but don't punch the accellerator unless you really mean it. Has every safety feature available on any new car and a superb stereo. The gas tank is ridiculously big; driven from Memphis to DC (around 850 miles) on less than two tanks of gas. Lots of thoughtful features on mine: integrated second row child boosters; built-in second row tray table with cup holders; built-in cargo compartment divider; clever rear-facing third row seats that my kids adore; electronic child-proof door locks.

Best Features

The twin turbo gives you all the power you could ever ask for in a family car. Feels as safe as Fort Knox and has Swiss Army knife versatility. Better gas mileage and safety ratings than any SUV.

Worst Features

Sport suspension does cause a few rattles here and there. No coin box in the dash?
