2003 Volvo XC70 AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)


We own 6 cars; every car we own is a
performance car INCLUDING the XC70.
We're STILL too sporty of a family for
a minivan yet we DO need to haul a
couple of kids and their
gear. "Smallish" 2.5 Low Pressure
Turbo can't hang with my AWD,
Turbocharged 535 hp S10 project but
neither can a Viper! :) BUT, this thing
will do a sub 8 second 0-60 blast in
cool weather! We observed 27 MPG on a
trip at speeds of 75-80 mph. My wife
has a lead foot and averages 18.2 miles
per gallon in city driving. Handling
of the "hi rider" XC70 is
not "Vettelike" but it is passable and
very safe in an emergency situation.
The seats are AWESOME!
