In the Shop Again!!
By JDR on


1998 Volvo V70 XC 4dr Wagon AWD


The Volvo XC AWD is a reliability nightmare! Mine's in the shop today for
the 3rd time in 11 months, and 8,000 miles for check engine light being on.
This time, I'm 19 days out of warranty and they're replacing the carbon
evaporation canister (the 2nd time in 2 years). The bill is $460.00 and I'm
hopping mad! Oh, let's not forget the stupid light bulb I need replaced this
go-around too. The one bulb I wish would burn out (check engine) hasn't! I'm
seriously contemplating dumping this junky car and return to driving my old,
reliable, 140,000 mile, '88 Honda Accord once again.

Best Features

None that I can think of at the moment.

Worst Features

Dear Volvo, Hear this and hear it well. Improve your quality issues, or lose customers. That's the American way.
