My fourth Volvo
By Marc on
2000 Volvo V70 XC 4dr Wagon AWD
...and my last; hello Toyota!. This car is a disaster, I had a lot of problems from the start: rear axle fell off, blew 3 injectors, catalytic converter, one headlight does not work anymore, driver door cracks, weak air conditioner even after a $2,500 repair, also quite a few false alerts from the check engine light coming on for various defective sensors, and a host of other annoying issues. The Volvo dealers have always this attitude that they are doing you a favor to attend to your car. Also forget about getting an appointment less than a week ahead. The dealer in Hyannis took 3 days to replace one injector (no courtesy car)..
Very comfortable car, great seats, nice ride, great radio,
Insane repair cost, poor reliability of the car in general, poor dealers support: repairs are often not done right the first time but nobody seems to care. The downhill quality of the car and service seem to have started with the Ford takeover of the brand.
