Who Needs an SUV

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


I bought my 2004 V70 to replace an Explorer which was a second car, when after a bad accident in another car I realized I would have suffered serious injury or worse in my SUV. What a great car! Very stylish, very fast (my other cars are Jag and BMW coupes) and this no sacrifice in the performance department, especially for a wagon. But, it's so comfortable to drive and gets great gas mileage 17/28 compared to 9/14 for my Explorer. I can't imagine why anyone who doesn't absolutely NEED the extreme size of an SUV (hear that all you soccer moms?) wouldn't get a Volvo wagon instead. Fit, finish, build quality and materials are on par with my BMW. Love this car! I'd never have another SUV

Best Features

Comfort, performance, gas mileage, reliability and the feel of driving a very safe car that you know will protect you if the unfortunate should occur.

Worst Features

Need to have a hybrid version of this car. Wish I would have bought the AWD SC70 instead because I like to go to the snow to ski and could use the 4 wheel drive and heated seats. Would like the rear to NOT be carpeted (I have two very hairy dogs who shed)
