1998 Volvo V70 XC 4dr Wagon AWD


I can't believe there are so many others that have had the same problems...power window, leaking oil, check light always coming on, brakes, tires/alignment, abs, control arm, shift console and now the engine and valves! Some problems couldn't be resolved because every service station (including the dealership) diagnosed it differently. And when the diagnosis was a recalled throttle, Volvo disagreed! Too much money into this car. We justified each repair by reminding ourselves it was a Volvo but no more because they are not what they used to be. The name no longer means anything. (Doesn't Ford own Volvo now anyway?) I'll be buying a Honda or Toyota next. Too bad Volvo isn't what they used to be.
