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


I've bought this car new & pretty much happy with it's service so far. Got around 23 mpg overall, that's pretty good on a heavy car.
Love Volvo's safety - had a head-on collision in our '83 240 wagon @30k mi. & it got fixed & last till 300k mi & still able to drive it to the junk yard :-)
2002 XC70: Yes, I do have following issues (did all the service myself) after new car warranty:
- front driver side coil spring (@ 100K)
- rear emergency parking brake pad
- tie-rod (inner + outter)
- #3 ignition coil
- lower control arm bushing
- upper engine torgue mount bushing
- Transmission lock up (ODB2 code: 700 & 740) this issue can be cleared with ODB2 & the car back to normal
