    2002 Volvo V70 - XC A SR AWD

    Pros: Wonderful leather seats.

    Cons: Couldn't get one with multi-CD changer in dash.

    Advice: Drive it thoroughly to see how comfortable it is.

    A wonderful car to drive. More than adequate power,handles very well, great in wet services. Seats are extremely comfortable, stereo is outstanding, 3rd seat allows 7 passengers. A great family all purpose vehicle that's not a minivan or SUV.

    2002 Volvo S60 - 2.4T A SR FWD

    Pros: audio controls on the steering wheel

    Cons: no place for loose change-major problem if you have to pay tolls and parking

    Advice: Buy the Turbo model it includes a lot of features you will want to have

    Front seats are very comfortable but not the backseat. I am very happy with the car, have driven 4,000 miles now and have not had 1 single problem.

    2002 Volvo V70 - XC A SR AWD

    Pros: styling and driving pleasure

    Cons: costly 30,000 mile service

    Advice: definitely check out this car and I am sure for the price you will be satisfied

    This auto is superb for a family or someone who wants a quality, safe and fun car to drive. The fit and finish is superb. We added on the optional redwood to the dash, radio, and all plastic interior areas. This made such a difference for the seemingly steep price of $795.00. Let me assure you it was worth every penny.

    2002 Volvo V70 - XC A SR AWD

    Pros: the seats and the looks

    Cons: read detail review

    Advice: wait for the xc90 latter this year or the chrysler pacifica in 2003 wow!

    love this car! test drove for 4 days(rental)but can't bring myself to buy one for the following reasons...dashboard refections on the windshield due to the rake. windshield wipers way to slow and does't cover enough area on the passenger side nor the rear window.not enough horsepower in the xc crosscountry.radio controls are to difficult.armrests on doors are way to small and hard as a rock!steering is to light. headlamps,not bright enough.grab handles are in bad place they could cause head damage in a accident.dirty front wheels always due to brake dust.vibrations up the spine depending road conditions.sometimes has rattles.needs larger cup holders(spoiled!)wish it had a compass!dash cupholder bad idea.sorry ,volvo are you listening? i need a new car!

    2002 Volvo V70 - 2.4 M FWD

    Pros: New roof rack feature does not require roof rails. You buy a Thule-made rack from the dealer for a very modest price ($130) that fits into special hooks in the roof recess, but it is strong and is rated to carry 200 lbs. Much more sleek and better.

    Cons: Nothing

    Advice: I was ultimately offered a price about equal to invoice, with little to no haggling.

    I have the non-Turbo for being a non-aggressive driver wanting optimal mileage. Definitely the car is very modest with the power, but that suits me fine. Otherwise, car is quiet, smooth, luxurious.

    2002 Volvo S60 - 2.4T A SR FWD

    Pros: Seat memory linked to keyless remote.

    Cons: Nothing

    Advice: Compare the list of standard options of the 2.4 and the 2.4T. You will see the 2.4T is well worth the extra money.

    I was suprised how well the S60 handled. My wife has a Mustang and this 'Family' car handles much better. The new body style is a big plus for Volvo. You can tell that Volvo takes a great deal of pride in their vehicles and they put a lot of thought into every aspect of the vehicle. This is a must see and drive vehicle.
