I got the 1st one!
By Paul F on
Vehicle2004 Volvo V70 R 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)
ReviewI waited 6 months to get this baby.
Dark grey with Atacama. No nav,
6-speed, integrated boosters
sunroof, etc. At 220 miles the rear diff
exploded and had to be taken out
and shipped back to Sweden. Had
bad front wheelspin (and wheelhop)
for a few weeks before I had the guts
to ask what the deal was. By that
time the front tires were gone. Ugly. 3
weeks on the rack. Only R with that
problem to date. Power's great, seen
130MPH. Traded in my 1999.5 Audi
Best FeaturesIntegrated child seats are KEY. I love the Atacama but my friends say it's too orange. Brakes are awesome. Put on Blizzaks for winter - no kidding. Get the 4 disc in dash. I didn't. The police hardly notice me in a grey Volvo wagon. Best interior smell in the business.
Worst FeaturesThe turning radius is horrible. The high-beams are weak. Those summer tires are bad in snow. VERY springy clutch. I still stall it after 11K mi. This is a dramatically different AWD than quattro. No tail-out power slides in this baby. Even with DSTC "OFF". Which sucks.
