2003 Volvo XC70 AWD 4dr Wagon (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 5A)


I thought that I had found the right car and for all its good qualities, I find that it eats front end parts, tires, head light bulbs and is too complicated for the servicing dealer(not the point of purchase dealer). So far the car starts everytime, but with angle gear replacement, brake booster failure, and miscelleanous odds and sods, I have enjoyed the $8,000+ repairs covered by the extended warranty ZI bought. The fit & finish however are superb, the ride is the best barco lounger for the long haul.. nobody makes a better seat. Funny though, for all I was told about "Boron" steel when I bought the car, a recent hail storm has told me it's not as strong as was suggested by the salesman

Best Features


Worst Features

Trained technicians. My last visit found the two techs telling me that a cycling electric vacuum pump was normal (even after the car was left ten minutes, keys out).. I was forced to use my backyard mechanic in me to challenge them a vacuum leak existed not a normal thing- enter brake booster
