Buying new car one part at a time
By Christopher Hanks on


2000 Volvo V70 XC 4dr Wagon AWD


Paid 5K$ for a V70 XC AWD Turbo with 95,420 miles plus 2K$ trade in. Biggest problem was failing Electronic Throttle Montrol (ETM) causing car to stumble and hesitate intermittently. Solution was to replace ETM with rebuilt/re-designed (non-mechanical) ETM for $689 plus $196 labor for installation. In first year have also had to replace serpentine belt, AC evaporator core, rack and pinion power steering assembly, catalytic converter, timing belt, engine mounts and rear stabilizer assembly - totaling another $8800 in parts and labor. Runs well now - hoping for another 100K mi

Best Features

turbo power when needed, leather heated seats, sound system, look of car

Worst Features

Don't buy a used one unless all of the abve has been done - and then expect to spend $14K...
