Excellence in a performacne wagon

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


After 3900 miles, with summer and
winter tires, car is broken in and mpg
is right up there as advertised.
Excellent acceleration in all 6 gears
(at least below 100 mph - I haven't had
it up into triple digit land). Seats
are outstanding providing you don't
need to lose weight, they are firmly
bolstered. Sport mode 4C is excellent,
comfort good for long hails on the
interstates or if you have back seat
passengers. Braking, overall handling
dry, wet, crosswinds, all excellent.

Best Features

Suspension, brakes, good power in all gears, flat torque curve, smooth shifting, optional sound system also excellent.

Worst Features

Cup holder gets in way of shifting if tall bottles put in it. Right now there are no aftermarket wheels, car definitely needs winter/summer tires and changing is easier with two sets of wheels, but OEM Phaetons are stylish and priced reasonably.
