The wagon that thinks it's an SUV
By DHH on


2002 Volvo XC AWD 4dr Wagon (2.4L 5cyl Turbo 5A)


This car has done everything we've
asked it to do, and more. We use it as
an all-around hauler. From family
vacations, to every day use, it's
extremely comfortable and roomy.

Recently, I was hauling a 14-foot
trailer, which was loaded with about a
foot of snow. I had to take it down a
dirt road, which was covered with about
18" of snow. Despite these obstacles,
this car plowed through it like
nothing. Any questions I had about this
cars' ability to get down and dirty
were forever vanquished that day.

I would highly recommend this car to
anyone considering an SUV, but would
really have a wagon.

Best Features

The seats are so comfortable, it's like driving in your living room. High ground clearance. Unflappable under poor road conditions. Good looks. Feeling of safety. Very practical.

Worst Features

Turbo lag off the line. Standard Pirelli Scorpion tires are noisy, and only lasted 20,000 miles. Mileage could be a little better. Some small quality issues (broken rear washer nozzle, broken door open sensor, broken hatch latch mechanism) that you wouldn't expect from a $40,000 car.
