Gas Hog! Like an SUV
By AndyH on


2006 Volvo V70 2.5T 4dr Wagon (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)


This is a solid, quality and well appointed car. Feels like it is worth the money and is comfortable to drive. Great capacity and a steady family hauler. However, the real world fuel economy is far worse than claimed by Volvo. If you care about emissions and fuel economy you should not buy this car. I am not sure how Volvo manages to fool EPA ratings but the real world fuel consumption is more like an SUV than a sedan or wagon. I would not buy again due to this.

Best Features

Exterior looks, comfort and solid build.

Worst Features

Improve fuel economy or advertise realistic numbers so consumers can make educated choices. The Volvo mechanics know that these things suck gas, so marketing has missed the message.
