2001 Volvo V70 T5 Fwd 4dr Wagon (2.3L 5cyl Turbo 5M)

Review

Expected Volvo lifetime, got Ford reliability. Well known transmission problem as listed on web, tailgate lift springs both shot, replaced top torque motormount after I could see daylight thru it, all rubber bushings in the suspension replaced after 85000 miles. Might be sophisticated European engineering, but LOUSY execution and parts quality. I will probably take the seats out and use them to watch TV in in my living room, and scrap the car. STAY away from this pile of junk.

Favorite Features

Gas mileage, great ride, carrying capacity

Suggested Improvements

Volvo MUST improve reliability / and design for ease of repair. The mechanics salivate when I bring it in,the labor is their kids to school It was my first and last Volvo.
