2000 Volvo V70 XC SE Turbo 4dr Wagon AWD
Looks aren't everything, unless you have one; towed 11 times. Axle bearings, transfer case, turbo oil leak 4x, etc. Pricey with high cost to maintain: Tires & brakes ~15k. Stranded my wife and little girl more than once. Not the volvo our parents had, but what do you expect from a company owned by ford? Would not buy another.
Other than its looks, the for sale sign. The creature comforts are nice.
Use quality components to build a quality car since you pay a premium for both car and service.
