A truly great car!!!

2005 Volvo V70 2.4 4dr Wagon (2.4L 5cyl 5M)


This is our 3rd Volvo. We had over a quarter of a million miles on our 1st Volvo (270,000 miles) and it ran perfectly when we sold it. We drove our 2nd Volvo over 18 years. When we traded it in on this 2005 model, the older Volvo ran just as well as the day we drove it off of the showroom floor 18 years ago. This new 2005 V70 is the best of the 3. It's a stylish wagon with lots of power (much more than we've had in the past). It handles superbly. Exceptional fuel mileage (34mpg highway) and just has a very solid feel to it when you drive it. We especially like the smooth ride. Our children like the extra room and comfort of the rear seat area.

Best Features

It's an extremely comfortable car for driver and passengers. You really notice this on a long trip. The whole family arrives at the destination in better shape than other cars. Also, the functionality of the car is well thought out so that it's an exceptionally easy car to drive.

Worst Features

DON'T CHANGE A THING!!! I think Volvo has an exceptional car here, even better than their previous classics (like the old 240). Don't tinker with a winner, this is a good as it gets.
