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


Review

Sometimes there is a bright and fun momemt when I remember what this car will do. Mostly it is used in normal service where it functions admirably. But when it has the opportunity it is a brilliant and extremely well balanced road car. I love it. My only complaint is that Volvo-Ford copped out on the interior stuff--too much plastic especially.


Best Features

Handling and road performance.


Worst Features

Larger rear view mirrors with exterior turn signals. The turning radius is extraordinarily large for a car of this size but maybe this is the price of the AWD.

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


Review

Beautiful car. Very comfortable. Fun to drive. Unfortunately, the engine would stall periodically and unpredictably. The dealer could never fix it and ignored the techical service bulletins I found on line describing the behavior. Huge blind spots that made merging with traffic a white knuckle experience. MPG could have been better. Vehicle maintenance was outrageously expensive.


Best Features

Seats. Turbo. Brakes. On road stability. Appearance. "Switchblade" key.


Worst Features

Fix the engine so it does not stall (this is a big deal). Most manufacturers have mastered this element.

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


Review

First the negatives: wide turning radius and poorly designed interface of the "premium" sound system. Otherwise this attractive, well built wagon has served our family well. It's 300hp still obtains 22mpg in city driving and 28mpg in 70mph freeway driving.


Best Features

Third row seat for our children.


Worst Features

1) Outsource the sound system, e.g. the Bose media system; 2) in view of fuel prices, give us a turbo- diesel.

Review

Actually I got some problems with my car only one week after purchasing it. I had to leave it at my local workshop. But since then everything has been working fine. I really feel that this is a good car. It drives very quiet, the design is nice, etc. Volvo is definitely quality.


Best Features

I think that the steering wheel and the chairs in the car is the best. It feels like sitting in a movie theatre. It can't get any better. Its better than the hard chairs in other cars.


Worst Features

My car have automatic transmission, and sometime I feel that the changes gear to late, and to fast. The driving can get quite "snatchy" if your foot is to heavy on the gas pedal.
