2002 Volvo XC AWD 4dr Wagon (2.4L 5cyl Turbo 5A)


I purchased this wagon from Carmax with 46,500 miles. Since the day I bought it it has been nothing but TROUBLE! In fact I almost returned it but ignored my instinct to do so.To their credit Carmax has taken care of all the problems under their 30-day warranty. So far, new brakes and rotors, drivers side headlight, numerouis electrical problems, numerous bulb replacements and the list goes on and on and, did I mention numerous electrical problems? The ride is great, it's comfortable and safe but, the build quality is poor and I'm now convinced the long term reliability of this car is just not there. Consider another car-this is my second and last Volvo. I'm going to trade it in for a BMW.

Best Features

Safe, comfotable, great looks for a wagon!

Worst Features

Bring a good QA team in and redesign the car! Have I mentioned the numerous electrical problems that plague the 2001-2002 V70XC Cross Country wagon? Watch out, they will drive you crazy!
