Pros: "comfortable ride and seating"

Cons: "constant expensive maintenance"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 1

"Transmissions are very weak, when they go (and they will) expect to pay over 6k to get a new one. There are no good ones out there in parts yards, that's the major reason they end up there. Constant electrical problems, very frequent check engine lights. Throttle bodies are know to be junk, Volvo originally was forced to replace them for free up to 100k, after that expect to pay 2k plus programming. Not your typical Volvo, either go back to pre01 v70's (old Style) or jump way ahead to around 07 when they finally stopped selling these cars new with the above flaws."

"This vehicle performs wonderful. I handles the road very well. The greatest features is the sound system. What's not so great about this vehicle is that it sits down very low."

"My Volvo V70 is the latest in a long list of volvos i have owned over the years starting in 1982 when i purchased a 1976 244 DL. I will probably drive volvo the rest of my life i would say. this V70 has been the best one yet and has never missed a beat.it stands out in traffic and is so comfortable to drive..I really dont feel it is any more expensive to service and mantain this car when compared to most other brands lets be honest."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 2

"I have owned this car for two years and have kept it dealership maintained. I paid $7,000 for it and it had 89,000 miles on it. Since owning it, the ABS Master Controller has failed, the crank case broke, front control arm bushing wore out, power steering pump started leaking. Other than that it has been a decent car. Don't expect anything but sluggish handling and a cozy interior and a tank of safety and you'll be okay with this car."
