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


We have had gas-guzzling Range Rovers
and Suburbans prior to our Cross
Country and we really appreciate the
total functionality of this wagon. It
took us through a blizzard, navigating
unplowed roads with 24 inches of new
snow without a problem. In fact, we
could not think of another car we
would rather have been in. It is very
comfortable and has good road manners.
It is attractively styled if you
select the right color to offset the
racoon mask front cladding. Why pay a
premium for the XC90? I guess if you
need a 7 seater it might make sense.

Best Features

The seats, styling and light off-road capability. Great ground clearance too.

Worst Features

The optional navigation system really needs improvement. It provides little visual information and it acts strangely at times. They need to include maintanance in the leases like BMW & Mercedes-Benz.
