ReviewI thought Volvos were better cars. You know, Sweden has harsh weather and terrain, so the vehicles produced there should be appropriately durable. maybe they have that public health care thing for cars also. yes, add me to the list of casualties. I bought my V70 XC last year and have had nothing but problems. Transmission was jerky so I took it to the dealer, only to have it reflashed with no improvement. While there, they discovered bad trans and engine mounts, leaking angle drive and several broken suspension components. This is in addition to the $2000 scheduled maintenance, adding up to almost what I paid for this vehicle. The service and repair history I requested was 34 pages!
Best FeaturesIt looks cool, I'm just not sure it will get me from point a to point b without a stop at the repair shop in between. Will definitely go back to a Japanese car.
Worst FeaturesMake it work right and not fall apart! Second worst car I ever owned, first being a 96 stratus. Don't buy either.
