Leaks more than the Gulf

2001 Volvo V70 T5 Fwd 4dr Wagon (2.3L 5cyl Turbo 5M)


This car was a problem child the moment we got it. Transmission computer failed, then the trans blew, engine mounts continually fail, side marker lights fell out several times. dipstick is constantly shot out, spraying oil everywhere, no solution from repair shop. Eats oil and gas like it's going out of style. semi-auto shifter broke early, expensive to fix. It is safe though, spends more time in the shop than on the road!

Best Features

cassette adapters work with its stereo, bucket seats are nice, handles decently

Worst Features

reliability, engineering, dipstick design
