I LOVE THIS CAR!!

by busy mom from Mountains of NC on Tue Oct 04 2011

This is just the car I wanted and I am delighted. We have the 3rd row seat and I can bring extra children without having a minivan or an SUV. My only complaint, IF I had to make one, is that the defrost is automatic when I press defrost: it IS fast, which is the most important thing in the end, but it is really loud. So sort of a picky complaint. I would buy this car again in a second. I have had it since April of 2011, it is now October. LOVE IT!

I love it

by Volvo owner from Gambier, OH on Tue Jan 04 2011

I have owned two Volvo 122S sedans, three 240s (two sedans and a wagon), an 850 sedan, and this one. I bought all of them used. Aside from the '68 122S this is my favorite. After fixing some computer problems at no cost when I bought it from a dealer under warrantee, it has been completely reliable. It is comfortable, has all the power I need, and I love the solid feeling.

This car is a money pit

by Volvos stinks from on Thu Sep 23 2010

This is the worst car I have ever owned. Major repairs keep on coming- thus far I have spent over $4,000 in repairs and the cheerful folks at the Volvo dealership tell me it now needs another $3,500 in repairs. It has 88,000 miles on it- are they crazy? Volvo charges top dollar for the lowest qualty. I will never own another Volvo- the reason Volvos are touted to be so safe is because they are always sitting in your mechanic's garage!

Too expensive to repair and headrest blocks view

by Zumiesmom from Eureka California on Thu Jul 13 2017

I really love it, but when things go wrong with it, wish I bought a different model. I would actually buy another one, mainly because I think they are the safest vehicle on the road.

Our Take on the 2003 Volvo V70

This is a city of traps. Any one of them could spoil a journey, especially if the trip is by passenger vehicle. Careful planning is required.

For example, size matters here. Bigger is not better, even if the primary purpose of your trip is to haul stuff. The streets are too narrow, too congested for dent-free, rage-free, police-free maneuvering of your minivan or sport-utility vehicle. It's better to bring something more manageable. I drove the 2002 Volvo Cross Country wagon, one of the rare Ocean Race editions.

The Cross Country has certain advantages other station wagons lack. First, it's a luxury-class Volvo. That means it's inherently intimidating. There's something about these... Read More
