A blast to drive!!!!
By Peter on


2006 Volvo V70 R 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)


This car has put the "fun" back into driving....and at a reasonable price. I shopped around a ton before buying my 2006 V70R. Nothing else came close! If you want lots of room without the SUV size,if you need safety, quality, speed, handling, this car is it. There are a few negatives though. Front bumper clearance is a concern everytime I park. The ride can be a jarring at times...price to pay for a "sporty" suspension, even in comfort mode. but the thing that bugs me the most is the turning radius. It's huge. I knew all of this going into this relationship. Bottom line. I love this car. Leaving an Acura TL/BMW 3 series at a light wondering what just happened is priceless!!!!

Best Features

Atacama interior is stunning! I love opening the door for the first time to show someone the interior. Stereo with Sub woofer is awesome. Instrument cluster ....at night.

Worst Features

Raise front end bumper, shorten turning radius, having a DVD/ screen as an option for rear passengers. Dampen suspension a touch in comfort mode
