My Last Volvo!
By fsails on


1999 Volvo V70 4dr Wagon


Bought car at dealer with 23K miles.
Started having electrical problems
right away.(wipers,turn
signals,headlight switch,signals,power
windows,etc.)Most of these failures
occured after warranty expired. Last
friday the ETS light came on.
(electronic throttle system)Dealer
charged me $120 just to download the
codes.They ended up replacing the
throttle body.($1144) This type of
failure is not acceptable with a car as
expensive a Volvo. Failure occured at
71K miles. Volvo should be embarrased!
Car is now for sale and we are for a
new Subaru Forester XS.
