2007 Volvo V70 2.4 4dr Wagon (2.4L 5cyl 5M)


Supremely comfortable as far as its seats go, 2.4 provides adequate power, feels very safe, understated looks. Its quirks can be very annoying, however. Chief among them are counterintuitive and slow-acting power door locks, needlessly complicated radio and climate controls, inadequate sun visors, unlit power-seat memory buttons. Not especially quiet in terms of engine noise. Fit and finish adequate but perhaps less than I expected. The dash trim is apparently real wood but finished to look cheaper than the plastic on my old Subaru. And might I add that tire-pressure sensors are a nightmare.

Best Features

Comfort, size, sense of safety, classic looks.

Worst Features

Pay more attention to the details of design and fit and finish. The pictogram climate controls are cute but unnecessary. (Have someone other than a dashboard designer evaluate them.) And test visors under all conditions. Rethink the power locks.

I had a big problem with the tire-pressure sensors also and the service techs, after several attempts, got that fixed. There was a malfunction in the system, causing constant problems, but that was a year or two ago and haven't had any further problems.
