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


Solid, powerful car. Took it on
kayaking trip, with all the gear and
four passengers thru lite off-road
conditions, and it handled flawlessly.
Incredibly comfortable. Std
stereo/CD/tape system adequate. A/C
whines, cargo cover chirps. Handling
superb, particularly in non-ideal
conditions. Rear seating easily
converts to ample cargo room. Rear
hatch is awkward to lift with an
armload. Love this car and recommend

Best Features

Passing power impressive. Seating most comfortable I've ever experienced. Interior quality and workmanship excellent. More than ample interior storage room. Steptronic gears A+.

Worst Features

Acceleration is touchy - bolts from a stop if not careful. Accelerator pedal should be wider and reach the floor. I really loathe that pedal. Automatic raising rear hatch would be excellent addition.
