Great Family Car. — Our 2003 Volvo V70 is a great looking car thar has held up extremely well over the years. It is still tight - no rattles, creaks, noises, etc. We find it very comfortable for long family trips to our vacation home in Canada. It averages 30 mpg at highway speeds.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Best car I have ever owned, reliable, comfortable, greart mileage, 10 years old and still look great, lots of cago space for those trips to our vacation home.

Cons: Confusing door lock system, head lamp bulb life low.

Great Car With A Few Glitches. — Love the car. Hate repairing it. I have electrical problems and I had a previous owner treat her badly (few oil changes) other than that, I love the car. AWD is tremendous. I would recommend this car to anyone who will take care of it. No car killers.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: AWD is a savior in the snow.

Cons: Expenses

Best Choice For Most... — Best Choice for most... Safe and reliable. Comfort that is hard to beat, a real looker too. Don;t be fooled by spotty reviews this car is much better then the average grocery getter. Doesn't retain its value very well, advantage to the used car buyer.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros: Utility, Milage, fuel economy

Cons: Electric components

If You Want A Diesel Estate, Consider This, Don't Be Put Off By The Volvo Badge! — For a Diesel powered estate car (with an automitic gearbox), the performance is phenominal, handling is great, turning circle is embarassing in car parks! Now has 128000 miles behind it, no squeaks/rattles worth mentioning, does about 35MPG locally, over 40MPG on a decent length journey. Heated seats are great in winter!

Pros: Overall performance, reliability, comfort etc

Cons: TURNING CIRCLE!

Fun Family Hauler — The seats are the most comfortable I have sat in. The car is big (to haul kids) but still has good performance with fast acceleration and good passing ability. It corners well but I upgrades the tires to Yokohama YK420s. The car looks good. Oh, and safe, safe, safe.

Pros: Comfort, Performance, and Safety

Cons: Scheduled Maintenance Cost, Gas Mileage, Insurance.

Good Car, Even Though It's A Stationwagon — I have the totally basic version (no AWD, T5, or anything), but it's a good car. Can haul hella people and stuff, and drives nice. Get the luxuary package, the leather iss worth it.

Pros: Space, drive, sunroof.

Cons: Size, mpg (around 20)

Well, It's A Stationwagon, But Not Terrible — My Volvo V70 is pretty good. If you do get one, get the luxuary package, totally worth it. But overall, great car, not a car for acceleration, but good for people and carrying stuff.

Pros: Leather, drive (smooth), handling, brakes, reliability, very easy to use car

Cons: Gas mileage (around 20 mpg, which is ok, but not the greatest), acceleration can be sluggish, worth getting a manual

Solid Swedish Stationwagon — Good loading, quite nice lookin both inside and outside. For Performance get the T5 or R series, otherwise its a quite plain car to drive, but on the other hand this is a family car thats famous for reliability and the possibility to load

Pros: Solid, reliable good loading space

Cons: Performance unless u get T5 or above
