1998 Volvo V70 4dr Wagon
Review
When I went out on a hunt to buy a reliable car, the first car that came to mind was a volvo. At the time my boyfriend had a 86 volvo 240 wagon and that baby never died on was once. In purchasing this car I thought I bought my work horse. A car that would last me 300k miles easy. Boy was I WRONG!! In the first week the check engine light came on. took the car to many mechanics, even volvo, costing me hundreds in diagnostics fees and still not fixing it. heater went out, that would cost 700 to fix. A/C failed $450 to fix. Timing belt (okay thats a given) water pump.. more and more sensors. one sensor was $350 to replace. door lock broke. the list is endless. DON"T BUY THIS CAR
Favorite Features
Despite the thousands of dollars in repairs... i oddly was attached to the car. She could haul pretty much anything I wanted. I like my bargain shopping and I never missed out on a deal because it couldn't fit in my car I finally sold her, having to fight back some tears but my wallet was thankful
Suggested Improvements
Ford pretty much ruined my respect for volvo. go back to your roots. in life and in cars, it always best.
