Transmission Troubles

2001 Volvo V70 2.4M Fwd 4dr Wagon (2.4L 5cyl 5M)


I love the car but am very disappointed that after only 85k we are getting rid of it quickly due to alleged transmission problems and fuel pump problems. This car has been babied - all services, all maintenance, all done at the dealership. We just cannot justify a new transmission at a cost of over $4k. I really thought the volvo brand would take me much farther than 100k miles. I hate that we are in such a disposable society that we sacrifice quality for profitability. Volvo will not get any more of my money.

Best Features

Great looking car. Easy to drive. Great visibility. Good gas mileage. Plenty of room.

Worst Features

Better warranty to suggest that the car is worth the payment and the company stands behind their product.
