They're nice. The sedans can be quite accommodating as well, just wish the trunk opening was a bit wider. I've had full size tower speakers in the back of my SR, huge subwoofers, and all sorts of big shipping boxes for Fedex (20x20x20).

Excellent! I go on a yearly bird hunt trip with my buddies, and my whip becomes "Hotel VOLVO". Plenty of room, and with a nice mattress it is way better than sleeping in a camper with a bunch of snoring drunks... Even better is when my GF and I go on a road trip. Plenty of room for sleeping and shenanigans...

Who would have thought the easiest way to move a relatively small Snap On box is in the back of a V70? It barely fits when tipped on it's back, but only requires one person, whereas my previous modes of moving it (Silverado HD, Sport Trac, conversion van) all required at least 3 people to load. Still learning...

I don't have any impressive pictures/stories of my current wagon. The most it sees are my 17' Grunman or bike.

My old 745, though.....hahaha the things I used to load into that beast.

My dad was dropping off a pretty big suitcase to my sister one day and I tagged along with him. He drives a 99 Ford mustang and he coudn't get the suitcase in the trunk. I laughed at him and told him I could carry 20 big suitcases in my car not including the roof rack. I used to hate having to throw things in the backseat because they don't fit in my trunk.

Wagon, hatchback, or SUV! In that order.

I would never in my life own a sedan!
