2001 Volvo V70: A Dependable Headache

Pros: - It feels like a small tank. It makes me feel just a bit safer than a lighter-weight car. - It has a large capacity gas tank- 21 gallons! So I can get a lot of miles out of a tank of gas. - It has a large cargo area. Groceries, camping, landfill hauls... there isn't much I can't carry. Cons: - It feels like a small tank so it takes more time to increase speed and to slow down. - It has a lot of small finicky electronic issues. For example, I can only change the seat position within the first 45 seconds after unlocking the car (must have been locked for a full minute). - It gets VERY unhappy in idle; makes lots of concerning lurches and rumbles. - I can only use premium gas and from high-end brands (Chevron, Shell, 76) or else it runs poorly. So, this makes it more expensive to own. - Because Volvo is an imported European car, every part and manual and service costs more than a domestic, easily available brand. Some mechanics won't even touch a Volvo; those that will charge you more to work on it. Overall, it's a solid and powerful wagon, but it's finicky and costly to own, maintain, and repair. A lot of headaches. I won't be owning another European car in the future.

2001 Volvo v70 turbo wagon. Great pickup for grocery getter.

I purchased the vehicle from a friend. At time of purchase the timing belt and turbo needed repair. For about 300 dollars I fixed the car and have had no issues. It is great running car. Body is in great shape. Interior seats have couple tears, but nothing seat covers will not fix. For initial $175 purchase and $300 repair cost, I'd say I definitely got great car for the price.

Volvo the Tank - She'll get you where you need to be

Volvo's can survive anything! I'm just a college student that works part time, it's nice because I don't have to worry about my car breaking down because it runs like a tank. I don't put much love into my Volvo but she gets me everywhere. The extra space in the back of the wagon is extra nice for getting larger things around in a small vehicle as well.
