Fun in Sun and Snow

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


I really enjoy my AWD V70 Volvo. It
has been a pleasure to drive. We have
had an ongoing problem with the sun
roof leaking. The carpet has been
replaced three times.

The roof racks sold by Volvo whistle,
which is a little disappointing. The
dealership has indicated that they do
not have a solution or a fix for the
problem, which seems absurd. I have
had to resort to rack pads to squelch
the annoying hissing pitch.

The performance in snow or icy
conditions has been superb. Overall,
it is a great car, a little
underpowered, but fun to drive in
either sun or snow.
