1999 Volvo V70 4dr Wagon

Review

The Volvo v70 was the most unreliable, and therefore most expensive car to maintain over the last 30 years of my car ownership. Repairs, (mainly major) were needed on an average of every 4-6 months of ownership. Average annual expenditures for repairs exceeds $4,000 per year. In addition to regular maintainence, these include replaced transmission, headlamps, ball joints, axel boots within a 12 month period, with less than 100k miles. This car was advertised as an auto that would easily perform well for over 300k miles. Volvo likes to charge extra for options that are now standard on others cars, ie: auto door opener, car racks, side rubber bumber mouldings. A big "No recommend" !

Suggested Improvements

Options at no extra charge with the basic models.Volvo no longer has an edge on safety features, so stop nickel and diming the consumer! Redesign the v70 - it looks and drives like a crate.
