Most expensive car I have ever owned
By Barney on


2001 Volvo V70 2.4T Fwd 4dr Wagon (2.4L 5cyl Turbo 5A)


Front end is weak. Constantly requires repair and replacement of tie- rod-ends, ball joints, constant velocity boots, etc. You name it, it's been replaced, multiple times. Power window motors, go through them like candy. Transmission was replaced with 1 mile left in warranty. Transmission is going again but it lasted 150,000 miles. Rattles, boy does it ever. But, it hasn't rusted out and the engine is still strong after 188,000 miles. Again, I cannot tell you how much this thing has cost to maintain but it's got to be close to the purchase price. Most comfortable seats of any vehicle I have owned.

Best Features

Seats are so comfortable

Worst Features
