What a disappointment
By makanani2 on
Vehicle
2001 Volvo V70 XC AWD 4dr Wagon (2.4L 5cyl Turbo 5A)
Review
I'm thinking the only reason why this car comes up with 4-stars is for the comfort and interior and exterior design, which are excellent. Tell any Volvo mechanic that you own a 2001 Volvo V70 XC and after they stop laughing hysterically, they'll weep for you. The transmission is going to fail, if it hasn't already. Mine had an oil leak so bad, we named the car "The Valdez". Three weeks after being told that it would cost more to replace the transmission and fix the oil leaks than the car was worth, it blew up on a mountain pass. If you want a Volvo, find an older 740 (non -turbo).

XC70 requires serious maintenance , angle gear , transmission service every 25 K miles , stop neutral software has to be updated or it will mess up your Trans. Sorry you had serious problem with this great wagon . Yeah 700 is great as i owned it till 300 K miles but also it required lots of attention and yes it is cheaper than this V70
