Good overall, many small repairs
By SBdriver on
1999 Volvo V70 XC 4dr Wagon AWD
Got mine from my father w/ around 145k miles. Originally a rental. Drove good, handled good, could take it camping, did fine in semi-off road conditions, very comfortable seats, good MPG, somewhat cheap to fill up, roomy. Inside covering for the back hatch came off/apart frequently - had sketchy mounts. Terrible cup holders, couldn't use center compartment when in use. Lots of minor/major? repairs including belts, strut cushions, something to do w/ the heater/ac, speakers on one side stopped working, hose burst once, steering out of alignment - car "rumbled" at 75+ MPH. Over all enjoyed the car. Crashed at almost 160k miles, still going strong. Appreciate it much more now that it's gone.
Speedy, good acceleration, leather, AWD, great storage.
Cup holders, hatch covering, back seat windows go down halfway - inconvenient for passengers/smokers.
