Sad to say goodbye. Hello newer V70.
By abigdor on


2000 Volvo V70 4dr Wagon


Owned 7 years starting at 90000 miles used and ending at 140000 when struck in rear. Never broke down. Only significant repairs: brakes, timing belt, tires. Nothing but normal wear. Great handling, performance. Good to better economy. Safety: rear-end crash proved car's value. Sadly, declared total by ins. co. Paint still great. Glass great. Interior somewhat dirty from heavy child use. Total net expenses less than $10000 for 50000 miles (20cents/mi): best I've had in many years. Have already purchased another V70 (2003) to replace it. Could not imagine what other car even to consider.

Best Features

Safety, looks, performance, economy, reliability, cargo room, solid feel of ride, tight turning radius. Bulbs cheap and easy to replace. Seat comfort.

Worst Features

Radio/cassette had small issues. Cup holders terrible. Rear hatch clips broke several times. Seat belt retractor weak, buckle caught in door many times. Move emergency flasher button away from shifter.
