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


I only have 300 miles on my 2004 V70 2.4.
Thus far I have no complaints.
I only gave this car 9 points in my review, as I am not
not comfortable giving anything 10's the
whole way through. This is a much better
vehicle than I had expected. Even the base engine
(auto tranny BTW), handles very well
for us. Carrying 5 people, it seems to
move pretty well too. I have not had any problems with
acceleration. The V70's fit and finish are top
notch. The climate control and air
filtration system work superbly. There seems to be
more rear passenger room than we had in
our 1999 Ford Explorer, with comparable
usable cargo area. While shopping for this model,
we also looked at the Dodge Magnum and
Volkswagen Passat Wagon TDI seriously, and
I have no regrets. This is a very well put together

Best Features

Climate Control and filtration. Driving comfort and positioning. Solid feel of the vehicle. Gas mileage (approx 30 MPG on highway).

Worst Features

In dash CD changer and auto dimming mirror as standard options.
