Wow! After reading the poor reviews of the 2001 XC 70, I had to let everyone know about my good experience. I've owned Volvos and my parents have owned Volvos for many decades. I purchased this car for the turbo and carrying capacity. I've been pleased. I bought it at 75,000 mi and now it's at 100K. I've kept up with the maintenance, which has been a bit more expensive than my sedans, but I have not experienced the transmission issues nor electronic issues that are posted on this site. Issues have been: alternator, 1 software update, transmission flush, cam seal leak, and common maintenance. There will always be the bad stories that are reported first. I'm happy with my car.
