We were thrilled to purchase our '03 Volvo XC70 but the excitement didn't last! One thing after another went wrong with the wagon... one year after buying it, the ignition went (sometimes the key would come out, other times it was stuck!)! The ball joints, brakes and rotars were shot. How many times do you have to replace a headlight bulb?!! The straw that broke the camels back: the angle bracket, which cost $2,500!! The car was constantly in the shop, and it was never inexpensive to repair!! We bought this as our family car... Volvo for life? We finally got rid of it and bought a Toyota Highlander Limited!!
It is a nice looking vehicle. The dealership we bought the car from was great!
Where to start? A better warranty? A more affordable service plan, more affordable parts? A more reliable car? The dealership we used to service the car (not the same dealership we bought the car from) should be reviewed by Corporate!
