Safety, Reliability, and Quality - V70 2WD

2000 Volvo V70 4dr Wagon


2000 V70 Wagon.
180,000 miles.
The Volvo safety features are its trademark.
I never felt uneasy about my family being on the road with any Volvo we've owned.
Our non-turbo is no hot-rod, so that reduces some of the parental "worry factor".

Besides regular maintenance,
most repairs are what one might expect - tie rod ends, brakes, the odd sensor.
There's been a surprise or two, but few.
Our mechanic says, "These things go forever".
It runs like a top.
No leaks, no oil burning.
Just a solid car, with nice appointments.

The build quality is great. 12 salty Michigan winters and no rust, at all.
It's no four-wheel drive, but it gets through Michigan winters, just fine.

Best Features

Heated seats. Good mileage. Inherent safety features. Interior layout is good, without too many frills.
