Vehicle2005 Volvo XC70 AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)
ReviewThere is a distinct delay when stepping on the gas pedal which can be a problem pulling out in heavy traffic. This car is truly terrible in the snow, seems to float, not in a good way. Changed the tires and this helped somewhat, but don't buy this car if you live in a snowy part of the country. Had over 100 "faults" in the computer electrical system recently, the dealer says this car is a computer on wheels and after over $500 (no parts in this cost) in computer software downloads cannot say if the problem will ever be totally fixed.
Best FeaturesThe ride is fine and plenty of storage. Gas mileage is good for this size car.
Worst FeaturesVolvo should be able to repair the basic operating systems in the vehicle. Better awd system. Use more universal parts so repairs and replacements are affordable (windshield wipers are a fortune and you must use Volvo wipers).

You simple didn't have 100 codes...someone is pulling your leg. If the vehicles computer is bad and these were simply false positives. 1. volvo parts are very affordable as far as european cars go...the V70 series has a long history, many units sold = affordable parts. Quit going to the dealer. 2. you can use any windshield wiper...were are you getting your info from...oh right the dealer!Report it
