XC70 Electrical Problems
By Deb on


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


What a dissapiontment! This car has been in the shop 6 times in the two years I've had it for electrical problems around the SRS airbag system and the DIM. I got it at 46k. It was at the dealers for 5 weeks last month. Dx: "We don't know what's wrong with your car. But, we got the SRS warning light to go out for you!" I have no confidence in the car or the dealer at this point. Plan to trade it in and get another Honda. Also, the dealer cannot seem to decide if synthetic oil is the best choice. They have used both. Do not get your fingertips in the way of the front doors during closure. Amputation risk!

Best Features

Great style, handling, and power. The seats are absolutely orthopedic, and super comfortable. This car handles the best in snow, ice and rain.

Worst Features

The electrical system needs something. No one seems to know what that might be. The exterior doors are dangerous finger crushers due to the tight fit closure with no space between the front and rear door seals.
