A good old trusty friend
I brought my 2002 v70 T5 back in 2012 for only 2k with 120,000 in the clock. I still have the now with 240,000 on the clock. The only thing I have had to fork out in is the new pencil coil packs, other than that all I do is give it a service once a year. It has been a good trusty car. Plus the power is great!
Most safest car i know !
I LOVE this car! Voted the most durable car and safest as well. I can totally attest to that ! I was hit by a semitruck going about 15 to 20 miles an hour in inclement weather ,! This impact only left two imprints from his tags and a slightly cracked tail light. WOW. Literally his grill covered my entire back window. OMG
Owned for about a year now, couldn't be happier
I love this car; it's not the coolest looking car and I get crap from my friends who think it's ugly but honestly I don't care! This car is extremely versatile in what it can do, and with an upgraded stereo face the sound system is also quite enjoyable. The back seats can fold down flat which lets you move a lot of stuff really easily. It gets great gas mileage that's on par with an average sedan (of it's time) but has most of the benefits of a small SUV too. I traveled from Seattle to LA to Dallas in one 4 day trip when the car had 130,000 miles on it. I was able to lay down completely flat in the back (I'm 6' tall) and still have room for all the stuff I needed to transport with me on that trip. The car never had a single problem on the road trip whatsoever, no overheating or anything. I was smart and got the oil changed and the car inspected right before the trip, and had the same thing done after the trip too just in case and both inspections yielded no flaws at all. The car accelerates and responds to the controls very quickly, and has a lot of automatic features like the thermostat controls in the cabin as well as the wipers. I wouldn't mind a flashier sports car but I fully intend on maintaining this car to the best of my ability until it just can't go anymore. Volvo cars that are well maintained have a tendency to stay on the road for a very long time so I think I'll be keeping this for several more years!
