ReviewNew to the Volvo world but my brother has owned three, including his current '02 V70. Just brought home our '01 T5 last month; it's a well-maintained 2-owner w. 95k mi. I've owned various BMWs, Jaguars, VWs, etc. & this Volvo compares very well. From the interior & exterior design to the performance & fun of driving, the car has an overall feel of real quality & thoughtful engineering. As preventative maintenance, I changed the timing belt (incl. tensioner & pulley) & water pump after the purchase; also put in a new cabin air filter. The '01 V70 sometimes gets a bad rap, but I suspect that's at least as much owner issues as the car itself. Thumbs up on a great car, especially the T5.
