Great Ride, Poor Interior Quality
By BigDave on

Vehicle

1999 Volvo V70 XC 4dr Wagon AWD

Review

I bought this with 40,000 miles. With the exception of the AWD axle blowing ($2200) I have had no serious mechanical problems. Burns oil and the brakes are very expensive ($900 for all 4) to replace. The interior has fallen apart from day one. 3 interior panels keep breaking clips and the back hatch panel has never stayed attached even after replacing the clips. Volvo is a good car mechanically and ergonomically, but it feels like Ford's traditionally poor quality interior. Leather is extremely cracked and many electronic annoyances.

Favorite Features

Reliable, comfortable, and easy to drive.

Suggested Improvements

All around interior quality 50 more horsepower
