Can't Afford this Car Anymore!
By Bummed on
1999 Volvo V70 XC 4dr Wagon AWD
I purchased my Volvo XC70 new,planned
to keep it for 200,000 miles. Within a
month the problems started and 80,000
miles later haven't stopped. The list
of problems is long (bulbs, engine
mount, turbo leak, door locks, power
windows(4xs), etc, etc. Volvo fixed
all under warranty. But unfortunately
the problems continued after the first
50,000 and are now my expense. I am
now replacing this car because I won't
continue to pour money into this
vehicle anymore. I had seriously
considered the XC90 - but won't take
the chance. The dealers must also know
that this year was a lemon because I
can't get near the Trade-in Values that
are listed on-line!
I love most everything about the car -
safety features, moonroof, stereo,
built in cargo nets.....
Besides the obvious mechanical and
Electrical failures mentioned.
