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


I traded in a troublsome 2000 M
Class. The XC is off to a good start
with no surprises. The engine is
strong (I use 89 octane)and runs
flawlessly. The front seats a
fantastic but the rear seats a just a
bit firm. The standard CD player is
fine. I have not had to use it in
snow yet. Mileage on the highway is
at or over the EPA numbers. I hope
that it is as trouble free as my
wife's 96 Vovlo sportwagon which has
had no problems since new, just
regular servicing.

Best Features

I like to power of the turbo and the manual shifting options. It has a great ride compared to my previous Mercedes. I have not found any seats as comfortable. The safety features found in this vehicle are the main reason I drive Volvos.

Worst Features

More power is always welcome. The interior is rather monocromatic. It would be nice to have a variety of colors and textures.
