Those dog gone Swedes :)
By Jim Miller on


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


I now have 6000 miles on the car and other
than an intial problem with an axle flange I
have been one happy camper. I have had an
opportunity to drive it a bit in a farmer's field
and although it is not my wife's Grand
Cherokee, it is more than adequate for minor
off road use. The A/C system is one of the
best I have ever used. The only short coming
that I have had with the car is handling. I
traded in a sports sedan and although the
cross country is no slouch, it definitely is not a
sports sedan!

Best Features

The best feature is the comfort of the seats, I have never had a car with this much comfort. I also enjoy the small thought out features i.e. when the fill windshield washer light comes on, the reservoir is down a full gallon.

Worst Features

It would be nice if the car ran on 89 fuel. I find that I am always filling the car with 93 octane, this just seems like a waste. Get rid of the Pirelli Scorpions, they are just not up to the caliber of the rest of the car.
