2002 Volvo XC AWD 4dr Wagon (2.4L 5cyl Turbo 5A)

Review

Until two months ago, I'd agree with the other posts - great car, despite price, some quality issues, and constant new tires. Then we hit 75,000 miles and the car fell apart. New suspension. New transmission. New power steering rack. New fuel pump. New fuel sensors (stalled on interstate twice!). Went to Consumer Reports and saw the bad news - as this car ages, the reliability ratings get blacker and blacker, and we haven't even gotten to the "drive train" and "electrical system" black-dot problems. I loved this car and now can't drive it across town without worrying that the wheels will fall off.

Favorite Features

Very comfortable, quiet, nice handling for a car its size, great alternative to an SUV, and of course very safe.

Suggested Improvements

Make reliable cars again.
