2000 Volvo V70 XC SE Turbo 4dr Wagon AWD
We bought this car 3 months ago and it's already in the shop with a blown head gasket (the major problem) and a leaking AWD box, total cost to get our car back is $3,100.00 if they don't find anything else wrong. None of the local import mehcanics could fix the head gasket so we had to have it towed to the nearest Volvo dealership 90 miles away. As soon as we get the car back it's getting traded in. Apparently when they get near 100,000 they are no longer dependable and I've been told to expect between 1,500.00 and 2,500.00 for every repair. It's not worth it. Our passenger side window doesn't work either.
Very comfortable seats, loved the sunroof and cargo net for keeping our dog in the back.
Better cup holders, they are very cheesy. Very sluggish under 30mph. Try making a car that has some longevity like the Japanese.
