Junk After 120K miles
By jmg1977 on
Vehicle2001 Volvo V70 2.4T Fwd 4dr Wagon (2.4L 5cyl Turbo 5A)
ReviewThis is a Volvo, right?
It is actually my 4th.
And my last.
Too bad for what used to be a great Swedish product, but not anymore!
Nice styling, great handling on the interstate and sips gas.
All ok until about 120K miles.
Then literally every electronic and fuel injection component, even the seatbelts started to malfunction.
Thousands of dollars.
Not the typical older car reliability failures and certainly Bosch doesn't make anything reasonably priced for replacement parts.
My next car will be American or Japanese.
Not as unreliable or expensive to fix.
Best FeaturesStyling, fuel economy, road manners
Worst FeaturesReturn to quality manufacturing of core systems so there is not a huge cost of ownership and frustration once the car is middle aged.
