Base Model V70 is AWESOME Value!! by Billy from Ventura on 01/31/2006. Trim: 2005 Volvo V70 2.4, Owned 1 year.
Pros: We bought the base 2005 V70 in May 05 and have racked up 15,800 miles as of 1/31. The finish both inside and out is excellent. The seats are supportive, adjustable, and easy to clean (we got the cloth seats). Fuel economy and driving range have been excellent for us. We average 27mpg overall, and we drive a fair city/highway mix. On our big road trip last summer we were routinely achieving 31mpg (with loaded roof) and found ourselves stopping for restroom breaks and just topping up the tank while we were off the highway--we never before have had a car with this kind of range (well over 500 miles on the open road!). Optional roof-rack and basket are AWESOME and very attractive.
Cons: It could be roomier inside--we got mild cabin fever on our big trip. Flimsy plastic covers for Child anchors located on back of rear seats broke off after first use. Visibility through side-view mirrors takes some getting used to; I don't have this complaint now, but I did when the car was still new-to-me.
Overall review: This is a fantastic family car. Even with two kids we just couldn't bring ourselves to buy a minivan, so our options were limited to SUV or wagon. We drove EVERYTHING--and even drove many twice. When it came down to it we ended up jumping on our local dealership's "lost leader" advertised to attract attention to their weekend sale. $23,000 plus roof rack, tow pkg, and tinting (and, of course tax) is not too shabby for a brand new car with a $31,000 sticker price. Our BASE MODEL car has an awesome sound system, steering wheel-mounted stereo and cruise control buttons, front and rear side curtain air bags, easily usable trip computer, plus nice cup holders, 12v plug for rear seat, and other neat items we only found in other manufacturers' "higher end" models. We are very happy with our car. *I must also add that our dealer (Ventura Volvo) is second to none with customer care--they remember me and my car when I call for scheduled maintenance (all maintenance included for 48,000 miles).
