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


We just went in for our 7500 mile check
up and are overall very pleased with
the car. It is very comfortable to
drive and there is excellent front
passenger leg room. We had a brake
problem early on that was fixed under
warranty. The most annoying thing
about the car is an ear deafening
acoustics problem that occurs with just
the sunroof open on the highway or when
only one of the side windows is open.
Another problem is the glare on the
front window from the taupe dashboard
which makes it difficult to see without
the reflection of the dash in full sun.

Best Features

Front seats; air conditioning; optional metal dog gate to restrain our four legged passenger safely in the rear.

Worst Features

Defroster/wipers not adequate in heavy snow/ice conditions; absence of rear seat cup-holders requiring the sacrifice of the front arm rest so that rear passengers have someplace to put their cups; fix acoustics problem and dash glare with taupe interior.
