The Wagon of Choice!!

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


After carefully researching all the other similar vehicles, we picked the XC70, with the premium and climate packages. Other makes came with more options for less money. But..a volvo is a volvo...is a volvo - it is all about safety. Most of all we love the feel of the solid construction. My wife surprised me by actually liking the feel of this car. When compared to an Accord, it has a slightly ponderous feel, but it is easy to get used to. Also the room...other AWD wagons in this class simply do not have the same roominess.

Best Features

Solid Construction, safety features and comfortable cabin. Adequately powered engine completes the driving experience.

Worst Features

The front passenger seat sensor that turns off the airbag needs work. Placing a ladies hand bag (with a moderate load) caused the sensor to display and error on the diagnostics display requiring a trip to the dealer. They say they see this a lot!!
