Money Pit!
By pdxfamily on


2001 Volvo V70 XC AWD 4dr Wagon (2.4L 5cyl Turbo 5A)


Purchased this wagon just before the arrival of our 3rd child. I wanted something safe and reliable. Every 6 months we're at the shop with an EXPENSIVE fix. The worst problem was the throttle body (it was eventually recalled and we were reimbursed). The car surged and stalled and you never knew when you pulled out into an intersection if the car would hesitate and threaten to stall. Each time I pay for an expensive fix, I decide to just keep the darn thing. Then, of course, another huge repair 6 months later. The most recent problem, a vibration in right front area, is apparently an axle. Last one for me - my husband's toyota costs a whopping $150/year for service/maintenance. Done with Volvo!
