great features, poor reliability
By azxcr Paul on


2000 Volvo V70 XC SE Turbo 4dr Wagon AWD


Well, we are happy with the design and
capacity, but it has been a major
mechanical headache! Look closely at
Volvo's used car reputation before you
buy one and definitely get all the
maintenance records. We have had
engine problems (two pcv valves, gasket
oil leak, numerous errorneous check
engine lites), disc brake replacement
(rear), electric lock issues (master
actuator replaced 2x), steering noises
(lube, lube, lube), and 2 minor
recalls. After much complaining, Volvo
offered to take the vehicle back off
lease IF we bought another NEW Volvo at
dealer cost. No way!

Best Features

AWD, 7 passenger seating, the fact that it is not an SUV. Shoulder belts for all my passengers.

Worst Features

Quality, reliablity, responsiblity!!!! Engine noise is excessive. Better on 2001 models, but compared to Honda and Toyota it is LOUD!!
