My Last Volvo - Disapointing
By jeffmay27 on


2008 Volvo XC70 3.2 4dr Wagon AWD (3.2L 6cyl 6A)


I have owned three Volvo's in the last 10 years, always leased them for 4 years and got another one.
This was my second XC70.
This 2008 XC70 has been horrible, the day I got it one of the radiators sprung a leak and I Was forced to get it serviced on a Satruday.
the sales rep did nto include an owners manual or the Volvo hotline.
Since then the floating panel had to be replaced, the windows do nto go up and down properly.
I took the car in at 82,000Km to get last warranty work done (I was late by 2K) and was told the rules - has to be under 80,000KM.
I guess a 10 year history with a Company does not warrant any reverse loyalty.
MY last Volvo - I will be glad when my lease is up Jul12.
