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


Review

One of the best performance car buys
on the market. It is also one of the
best cars on the market. There are
not many manual-transmission wagons on
the market. Great engine, great AWD
and the 6-speed is one of the best
I've ever used. The interior
(Atacama) has gotten so many
compliments I have long since lost
count. The replacement for my 2001
Acura MDX was going to be this or the
Infiniti FX35 and the decision really
came down to exclusivity. While the
FX is a phenomenal car, there are too
many of them. I can count the number
of Volvo Rs I've seen on two hands.
It also has a great sound system and
an awesome adjustable suspension!


Best Features

Exclusivity Stealthiness Trick adjustable suspension (4-C Chassis) Engine (are you kidding me?!) Seats (some of the best of any car on the road at any price!) Great Dolby Digital sound system AWD versatility and safety Volvo safety I could go on an on...


Worst Features

Not many. The biggest complaint is of the turning radius, which is really bad. I've probably gotten used to it though.

2004 Volvo V70 2.5T Fwd 4dr Wagon (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

I bought this car (my first Volvo)
after having a Lincoln Navigator (over-
priced piece of crap), I LOVE THIS
CAR !!! It is fast, comfortable and
sexy for station wagon (after limo
tinting the windows), I AM NO soccer
Mom, even though I have 3 kids, But,
when people I know pick on my choice I
take them for a ride (or let them drive
it) AND well, they have a different
perspective. Test drive one you'll love
it !! The ONLY down fall my Husband is
6'01" and he said that it is tight for
him in the drivers seat,But that it is
fun to drive. Ask a Dealer to crash
pictures AMAZING people walk away !!!


Best Features

Radio, very comfortable seats, convenience features, Message center, space, Service package, Warranty and Roadside. AND Safety features.


Worst Features

More reasonable add on's when purchasing.

2004 Volvo V70 2.4 Fwd 4dr Wagon (2.4L 5cyl 5M)


Review

The 2004 V70 (2.4L) is
our third Volvo wagon (following a 1990 240 and a
2000 V70.)

Exterior styling, cabin ventillation and the center
console are all improved. The ride is smoother,
more comfortable. Front legroom gains about an
inch. Fuel economy is slightly better. And Volvo
finally got cupholders right.

However, the turning circle gains about 6 feet.
Some interior dimensions are smaller. Window
rollers are on a hair-trigger. And the
decent-sounding stereo has absurdly difficult
controls.

The car continues to offer exceptional comfort and
safety design, but Volvo needs to fix a few more
details.


Best Features

Comfortable seats, ample cargo room, safety features (lots of airbags, anti- whiplash seats, superior head restraints, relatively short braking distance). Easy rear seat fold-down.


Worst Features

Make DSTC (skid protection) standard. Add radio station preset buttons (and offer that wonderful HU-803 stereo in ALL cars). Bring back the 2000- style fan control (with AUTO setting). Offer a diesel engine again.

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


Review

The V70R is an extremely quick and
agile wagon. Combining comfort and
athleticism in one package. In
addition, Volvo's world renown
attention to safety is unsurpassed.
This car is awesome, it has world class
acceleration and braking that make it
hard to beat.


Best Features

Awd, 2.5 5-cylinder Turbo, Safety Systems and build quality of a Swede.


Worst Features

Front Cup Holder placement. But then again, this car's for drivers only.

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


Review

This car has the turning radius ofthe
Queen Mary. Also there should be a
warning BEFORE the purchase that winter
tires are necessary, a $700 surprise.
The dash clock is difficult to read in
most day light hours. The door lock
system does not differentaite locking
from unlocking. But great handling and
performance in sheep's clothing.


Best Features

Handling and performance


Worst Features

Turning radius; back lighting of dash; locking system sound both interior and key fob.
