Love My Volvo

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


I chose the XC70 because of its
versatility, reliability, and safety.
It has met my expectations and then
some. It has lots of room, all the
amenities I want (but not those I do
not want), has decent gas mileage, and
is fun to drive for a wagon, especiall
with the Geartronic transmission. My 3-
year old son and our three Labs are the
reasons why we need this type of
vehicle. I used to drive an SUV, but
prefer my AWD Volvo.

Best Features

The XC70 (and I suppose all Volvos) have the most comfortable seats I have ever sat in. My car has the optional built-in booster seat, which our son loves. The cockpit is well laid out, and the passenger area is roomy. We also like the large cargo capacity.

Worst Features

This car needs a built in compass in the rearview mirror. Less expensive cars have this standard. It also should come standard with an in-dash 6- CD changer. It also needs more storage compartments in the cockpit. A front facing third row seat would be nice.
