2004 Volvo V70 R 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)


The LAST thing I thought I'd get was
another Volvo--but after testing the
Lexus RX 330 and the VW Touraeg and
beind dissatisfied with both, my
husband talked me into visiting the
Volvo folks before I turned the XC in.
I'd heard about the V 70 R, asked to
see one. They had one on the lot
("hard to come by")--I drove it and
took it home. Daily driving has become
a pleasure--I love it so much I often
wash it myself. And it's stealth-fast:
I'm still treasuring the shock on a
Carerra 4S owner's face when I blazed
past him on my way to work (same
hp)...Nobody knows what this car can do
unless they've been in one or have
driven one. Finally--a hot Mommy car!

Best Features

interior design, good lumbar support in seats, sound system, A/C in rear panels for back seat passengers (all of whom say there's enough legroom).

Worst Features

Nav system works great but steering column buttons make input tedious and clumsy; FUEL EFFICIENCY: the average mpg is advertised at 18--I'm a prudent driver (except for that atypicaldrag race with the Carerra), and I've not gotten beyond 14.2 mpg. Not good enough.
