2000 Volvo V70 XC 4dr Wagon AWD


I always wanted a Volvo wagon ever since I was a kid, so I was thrilled when I got my 2000 Volvo (used). Since purchasing the car in 2004, I have easily put in $12,000+ on major items: AWD system, new radiator, rebuilt transmission, etc. While I love this car when it's working - it's powerful and feels safe - I dread when the engine light goes on (which is quite often). Just found out I need a new catalytic converter and two O2 sensor - another $1700 repair. This time, I'm trading it in - I just can't see putting any more money into this car! I will NEVER EVER purchase another European car again...I'm going with Subaru for my next station wagon. I can see from this site many others agree!

Best Features

Love the way it looks and its powerful engine. I feel safe when I drive.

Worst Features

Yes - emulate the Japanese cars so you don't find yourself in the shop with major repairs several times a year.
