Great car, No key entry to rear hatch
By Bernie on


2006 Volvo XC70 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)


I own the car for 6 weeks now, and love it, except for the fact that if for some reason you can't open the rear hatch with the remote, or from the lock control inside the car, there's no key entry place to be able to gain access to the rear. This is super important to me because I'm disabled, and my scooter is in the rear compartment. If I can't open the hatch for some reason, I'm really going to be stuck because I won't be able to remove my Scooter. I wonder where their heads were in designing a wagon, where there's no way to gain access if the remote or the carlock don't work for whatever reason!

Best Features

It's a Volvo! Super comfortable driver and passenger front seats. Lots of space in the rear compartment for a handicapped person to store wheelchair or scooter.

Worst Features

There should be a key entry to the rear compartment! Hide it, but there needs to be a place to use a key if all else fails.
