2001+ XC70 Owners Chime in on Ownership

Which XC70 Year to Buy?

This is an interesting topic about XC70 years because it’s from 2006. What was the conventional wisdom regarding buying a used XC70 four years ago? Has thinking changed vs. today? I don’t think so.

Let me add that you should run from the ’01 like it were a pygmy chasing you with a flaming elephant dung tipped spear…..& rethink dumping current car – I wish I had.

    My 2002 Volvo V70XC has performed well since I bought it almost 5 years ago. I bought it used for $15,000 with 134,000 klms on it. It now 208,000 klms and the only major repair I’ve had is the entire emergency brake system (including rear breaks) which cost me almost $3000. The rear shocks need replacing and the transmission hesitates when its cold in the morning and I shift from reverse to drive the first time. Sounds like I have some expensive repairs coming up, but I feel the car has done well for what I paid for it. The body is in great shape and runs well, especially on the highway. All of the accessories work well except the front speakers distort. I’ve replaced the speakers but they still buzz so I’m assuming the amp in the stereo is gone. The rear speakers work fine though.
