2004 XC 70 six -month review
By Gregg Corey on
Vehicle2004 Volvo XC70 AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)
ReviewWent to Volvo in August 2004 after very unpleasant ownership regarding a Jeep Grand Cherokee LTD. The Volvo has good styling, interior appointments are good- exceptional (leather quality), with the seat comfort exceptional. Fair to good performance, with handling very good. There does appear to be certain "blind spots" when turning sharply or backing up. Interior noise levels are minimal.
Best FeaturesLooks, reported reliability (no warrnty claims as yet), comfort, safety, dealer support and attention to service (best I have ever experienced!. Haven't used it yet, but the "W" (i.e. Winter) traction option control is slick.
Worst FeaturesLack of "creature comfort" features that are standard with competition (i.e. full roof rack, tow hitch, passanger storage "what not" bins) driver interior "spare change" holder
