2005 Volvo V70 R 4dr Wagon (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)


I purchased the automatic version of this vehicle because I am a high mileage driver (50,000 miles per year- road miles). This vehicle is a little slugish and I have discussed this with my dealer. I was expecting a faster automobile off the line and currently I am considering an after market EUC upgrade. I owned a 2001 V70 T-5 that was quicker. Mechanically, Volvo parts don't last many miles (bushings, shocks, engine mounts, etc). My T-5 had one of everything replaced in 205,000 miles, except the engine and the trans needed replacing when I traded it in. I truly hope the V-70R holds up better over time.

Best Features

Stylish and quick. Great handling.

Worst Features

Supension parts need improvement, bushings, engine mounts, shocks are all supplied by the lowest bidder and are not quality parts.
