A Winner for the Long (and Large) Haul
By Gail on


2005 Volvo XC70 AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)


I purchased this wagon for Michigan winters and it has been wonderful. I hate vans and SUVs so this was a great way to transport kids, snowboards, and weaving looms but then also have some dignity and style. It has been perfectly reliable and made winter driving a joy for this transplant from NC. The only change I'd make is the digital clock that tends to speed up and is difficult to set exactly. The car doesn't get super mileage, but the tradeoff is a heavy, safe and sturdy vehicle that I will keep hopefully as long as my last Volvo (15 years!!) I highly recommend this brand/model and hope it is still a winner in 10 more years.
