2006 Volvo V70 2.4 4dr Wagon (2.4L 5cyl 5M)


I finally decided to splurge and buy a midlife crisis car after 12 yrs with a Civic. Much to everyone's surprise I purchased a used Volvo V70 2.5T; everyone thought I'd buy an Outback. So far, I'm very happy with the car: comfortable, quick, good handling, hauls lots of stuff, great AC and heated seats. I wish the gas mileage were a bit higher, but waiting to take a longer trip to see what happens. The car also has a very large turning radius but it's due to the 17" tires. I think I got a good deal by going out of State (to Texas) - I saved about $10K off MSRP by buying one with 6K miles, plus it had the extended 6yr/100K warranty. I'm hoping for many years of driving satifaction!

Best Features

Comfort, highway ride, fit and finish, AC, cargo capacity, fun to drive.

Worst Features

More nooks and crannies to put stuff (besides the door panels), smaller turning radius.
