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


I like the v70 it's a great family car, my younger chidren have a great view when out "low" window sills. In base form it is a cruising vehicle but peppy enough. Its has over-competent handling for a family car compared to an suv or minivan - it will carve an off ramp suprisingly well- but hardly any one who drives one knows that. The v70 is subtle in its refinement which really shines in the mundane like running errands around town. It will keep up with and pass suvs with 3x's the horse power if you feel so inclined but prefers to quietly glide about - It is not u Dad's pontiac grand safari - it is a mercedes within 9/10ths of that vehicle at a 20K discount.

Best Features

Great a/c, excellent view out for children, superior seats even if your 6ft. Get the premium package leather sunroof power seats very nice package.

Worst Features

Idle needs refinement vibrations can be felt, subtle but there. Make it feel like an s60 2.4t at "high" interstate speeds without using the low profile tires - NO TURBOS and get HP to 215 in base form
