Great car until you hit 100K

Vehicle

2001 Volvo V70 2.4M Fwd 4dr Wagon (2.4L 5cyl 5M)

Review

This is my third Volvo. I loved it for the first 100K miles or so. After that, the thing starts to get really expensive to own. It seems like every electrical, fuel injection, and exhaust system has gone bad. New alternator, catalytic converter, several sensors, computer. Not the reliability of the first two cars. BTW, Bosch doesn't make anything that costs less than 200 dollars. If you plan to keep this car or buy a high mileage Volvo, make sure you have the money in the bank to fix it! Also, the leather they used in this thing looks like crap after about 75K of normal use.

Favorite Features

Styling. Fuel economy, good road manners.

Suggested Improvements

Better leather quality. Less costly to repair. Greater reliability.
