Poor front bumper ground clearance
By William Likens on


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


Beautiful car, but has problem with poor ground clearance. Bumper cover scrapes curb stones and gets damaged when pulling out of parking spaces. Don't buy the R model unless you are willing to pay for multiple $950 bumper cover replacements. It happened to me. Apparently the experience is very common. The V70 has better front clearance.

Best Features

The Atacama leather seats look great.

Worst Features

Design needs to be corrected to provide 2 inches more clearance on front end of car.
