2000 Volvo V70 SE 4dr Wagon


Volvo has offered many generations of mid-sized station wagons. Only Subaru has been able to challenge the great value offered by the Swedish marque.
The 2000 Volvo V70 wagon was the last year for the P80 chassis and it came with a great 5-cylinder engine in either normally aspirated or turbo format.
The SE model was very popular and continues to satisfy many families as it ages gracefully compared with its competition.

Best Features

The heated seats and nordic defrosters (on the rear window and rear view mirros) as well as the head light wipers and washer are great features for those in the northern climate. While the 5-speed manual transmission is a rare, but great feature for enthusiast everywhere.

Worst Features

The best way to improve this vehicle is to upgrade to ceramic brake pads and the use of advance lubricants on the brake caliper parts. This extends the life of the otherwise average reliability braking system. One other improvement was addressed in future model years, most notably the AWD system on the XC models was updated and is more capable than the system installed in the earlier (pre 2001) models.
