10 Months later: XC70 Impressions
By whr on
Vehicle2003 Volvo XC70 AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)
ReviewGood car, superb engineering on seat
fold-down method for use of full cargo
area, driver door had an annoying
rattle -- dealer fixed on warranty;
poor design and material on console
lid hinge...it broke quickly and cost
$175 + installation to
replace...dealer service tech
installed wrong color (QC...?),
causing another return trip
and "discussion" with the service
manager. Mileage around town isn't
too impressive...about 15, but highway
mileage improves significantly (25+),
and it's fast on the open road.
Overall we like it alot and have
recommended to a friend who also
bought one and loves his.
Best FeaturesEasy to use cargo area, great seat comfort, seat memory for multiple drivers, built-in kid booster seats are terrific and the kids love them. Tiptronic transmission is nice.
Worst FeaturesA few more ponies, lower 1st gear in "standard automatic" mode so it isn't sluggish (this isn't a prob in manual mode). Firmer suspension (a little bit) and BMW style 3-mode Steptronic would be good, i.e., auto/sport-auto/manual shift.
