Stay away!
By Lemon on


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


We purchased this car one year ago with 61k miles and have had nothing but problems. It has left me stranded 5 times in the past four months! Very very comfortable to wait for the tow truck in. Every time we get in this car something goes wrong. We are aware of at least $5000 (no exaggerating!) worth of problems with this car. Absolutely the worst car I've ever owned. We purchased a Volvo for safety and reliability...but stalling at 70mph on the highway with two small children in the dark negates any safety features of this tank. Stay away! We take delivery on our next car (not a Volvo!) tomorrow. Can't wait to get rid of this bomb!

Best Features

Very comfortable to wait for tow truck in.

Worst Features

I'd like it to work when I turn the key, for the features (like brakes, steering, cadyllidic converter, alternator, gas gauge etc.) to actually work, too. Also don't like the oil and various fluids leaking in the driveway constantly. This isn't even 1/2 the problems we've had in one year!
