Great experience with 2000 V70 XC
By Banjo on


2000 Volvo V70 XC SE Turbo 4dr Wagon AWD


Few things to mention. Owned it for 24 months, found that a 10 year old Volvo is like a 3 year old domestic. When I buy used I take the following precautions:
1. replaced the oil every 3 months, regardless; air filter every year.
2. always replace the thermostat, battery, and change your antifreeze
3. drive it like its age. this turbo can toss your head back but it is aging. so why f&k with the tranny and engine, capisce?
4. keep her clean, wash it.
5. check engine and other lights are overrated, look into the real problem using a 'european' mechanic. Domestic tech kids should remain in their toyRus sandbox. Volvos and Subarus are easy to fix but use a 'pro'fessional.
6. Read the manual.

Best Features

Solid car. Safe car. Reliable. Fuel efficient with turbo. Spacious and excellent suspension for hauling gear in difficult rural areas. Easy to service (opens like a oyster but learn to read a Chilton manual) Love the sunroof Great air circulation Excellent anti-paint chip design. Nice for long legs

Worst Features

Better windshield quality. Should include Torque set as part of service tools
