2004 Volvo XC70 Wagon AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

We've been looking for a good-looking
SUVs but without the unnecessary bulk
of most major SUVs. We traded one of
our cars (AUDI A4 Quattro) for this new
XC70 Volvo. We also considered the
Lexus R330 and Volvo XC90. We found
these latter two SUVs to be too
tall/high for our "rescued" South
Russian Sheepdog to jump in and out of
the vehicle. We chose the XC70 because
he is able to recline comfortably while
in the car. The XC70's safety features
also made us choose it over the Lexus
R330. We would have chosen the XC90 but
besides the "height" situation, we also
found it a little "too feminine" looking
:) Although I've seen quite a few women
driving the XC70 here in the LA area.


Best Features

SAFETY, EXTERIOR FINISH, COMFORT, INTERIOR SPACE, AND IT'S REMARKABLE EASE OF DRIVE DESPITE OF IT'S SIZE---I actually prefer the driving quality on our new Volvo XC70 over our AUDI A4 quattro.


Worst Features

FUEL ECONOMY, Automatic locking door, ease of use of the entertainment/music controls/functions, parking voice/warning assistance especially when parallel parking-should be a standard feature considering the length of this vehicle

Review

Great vehicle BUT the front seats r up
to high and not much leg room in back.
A/C not that cold.


Best Features

turbo & handling. Height of vehicle, so it's easy to get in & out of.


Worst Features

LOWER the front seats mounting points!! More leg room in rear. Stronger A/C.

Review

Loved the comfort and ride of this
car. Went from Mercedes ML320 to this.
Improved gas mileage, comfort and
relability. The car handles great and
has great creature comforts. Went for
safety and proven track record and
longevity. I feel I will get it in
this car.


Best Features

I love the comfortable seats, dash layout and night time driveability. One of the best cars I have ever owned.


Worst Features

Maybe locking doors once moving, CD status in dash display and gas cap holder like Mercedes.

Review

Finally bought it.Always liked the
XC70.My Wife and son were in an MVA
recently in her Volvo S40 with an SUV
and the S40 held up amazingly.Any other
car in the S40 class would have yielded
far more severe injuries. Volvo's
safety is first class. We chose to
replace the S40 with another Volvo,
more family practical vehicle. As much
as I enjoy my SUV, SUV's cannot compete
with the XC70.Rides the way we all wish
SUV's should.Accelerates, brakes&
corners like many sedans.Feels as
comfortable as many luxury
vehicles.Great driving experience.And
knowing that my wife and son are in one
of the safest vehicles on the road, the
best feeling. No SUV rollovers.


Best Features

Comfort, every safety feature volvo incorporated into this vehicle, ground clearance, AWD, auto windshield wipers are cool, cargo space with wagon, look in and out, geartronic, rear seat vents, memory seats, color, 26 mpg, bought demo model and got incredible price with 5K mile.


Worst Features

Rear window release, door lock in cargo area like my Ford Explorer, wish doors auto locked at 5mph (surprised with volvo emphasis on safety they don't have it), better center console, compass,

Review

I've had my XC70 2 months, & the more
I drive it, the more I enjoy it.
Excellent fit and finish. Great
visibility, and very comfortable
seating. I am surprised that there are
not more of these on the road. This
car is a keeper!


Best Features

seating, cargo capacity


Worst Features

automatic door locking mechanism is the only thing I find this car lacking.
