Volvo V70 or V70XC/XC70

Post by drake19 » Sun Aug 18, 2019 3:17 am

I'm heading over to the US to study and would like to have a car while I'm there. I'm from Europe so I really have a thing for station wagons, therefore the cars that I'm the most interested in is of course the Volvo V70 and V70XC/XC70 (model year (2001-2007) and maybe even the V50. I will bring around $5500 which isn't a lot but it should be enough to find one of said cars in a decent shape right? This will also be my first ever car purchase, what should I look for? Did the V70 and XC70 get much better after the face lift(2005) or are they about the same? Considering that the XC70 have an AWD system that might fail and cost a bunch to fix, is the V70 a much better purchase?
