V70 T5- Not a Bad Car
By TEF on
Vehicle2001 Volvo V70 T5 Fwd 4dr Wagon (2.3L 5cyl Turbo 5M)
ReviewBought new in 2001 through Volvo's Diplomat Sales as special order with cloth interior (vice leather) and 5- Speed MANUAL transmission. Car has been very reliable and aside from usual wear items such as pads and rotors, have not spent more than $1K over last 10 years for repairs that included replacement of a pollution device plus new timing and serpentine belts. Perhaps having the manual transmission that's made the difference, but has been dependable and decent on gas. Would not buy another Volvo because Ford pretty much destroyed the company. Current Volvos are just too expensive for what one gets. Current models offer old technology.
Best FeaturesFront-seat comfort and decent cargo capacity. Wish the Japanese or Koreans offered station wagon of comparable size.
Worst FeaturesStay away from the Volvo's automatic transmission.
