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


After 12 months, still impressed. Purchased after extensive research and test drives of several brands in a quest for a wagon-- closest competitors were Mazda6, Audi and BMW 3 series wagons. (BMW 3 series wagons impossible to find, plus dealers not helpful.) Gas mileage has actually improved over time to about 22 mpg around town-- dealer recommended using Chevron regular grade and it has performed well. Brake check valve and outside mirror glass replaced under warranty right after delivery. Otherwise trouble-free. Dealer/service has been great.

Best Features

Safety engineered in. BOTH front seats have a wide range of adjustments. Wife and I both have back issues, yet find the seats wonderful-- able to enjoy long days driving on a trip to Texas. Controls and instruments clear and well laid out. Small details show careful engineering.

Worst Features

wheel wells intrude into front foot space. turning circle should be smaller.
