What Our Members Are Saying about the Personal Experiences of the Volvo V70

Volvo V70 Personal Experiences: Pros
2004 4dr Wagon 168-horsepower 2.4L I5
5-speed manual FWD
Have had Volvo wagons as main car or "home depot" 3rd car for 30 years. Nothing has compared to combination of carrying capacity and quality auto engineering. But always plain looking - never bought anything newer than 245 - until V70 which looks good full 2004 Volvo V70 review
2004 4dr Wagon turbocharged 208hp 2.5L I5
5-speed automatic FWD
Our family first purchased a Volvo in 1981. We have since purchased four more (Five total with three different models: two 240s, two S70s, and one V70) and have never been disappointed with styling, comfort, safety, or quality. Volvo for life! full 2004 Volvo V70 review
Volvo V70 Personal Experiences: Cons
2001 4dr Wagon turbocharged 247hp 2.3L I5
5-speed manual FWD
So far the least reliable Volvo I have ever owned. Issues with complex monitoring and control systems. full 2001 Volvo V70 review
