Volvo V70 Reliability and Durability: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2009 4dr Wagon turbocharged 212hp 2.4L I5 Diesel
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
This car can easily go for 300.000 km, without problems, if the maintenance is done properly.
2007 4dr Wagon turbocharged 161hp 2.0L I5 Diesel
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
Long lasting engines.
2006 4dr Wagon Not a single issue with this vehicle!!! I actually wrote this review as my perfect history with this car is not showing up in the True Delta ratings.
2005 4dr Wagon More the durability than reliability. I fully expect the car to go at least 200K, or more. On the reliability end, I have not had any problems whatsoever at 40K, though have heard some repair horror stories about earlier models of this vehicle
2004 4dr Wagon 240-horsepower 3.2L I6
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
My wife and I are just about to roll 100k miles on our 2004 XC70 and it has been very reliable. Nothing but scheduled maintenance to report, and even the cost of said maintenance has been very reasonable—on par with Hondas that we've owned. The key to Volvo ownership is finding a reputable and reliable independent repair shop. In my area I have a guy who loves, lives and breathes Volvo. If I only had the dealer, I'd own another make.
2004 4dr Wagon 60,000 trouble free miles for 4 plus years.
2002 4dr Wagon (Besides the turbo), Volvos are reliable cars if you maint them.
2001 4dr Wagon The only unreliable Volvo I've ever owned (this is number 6). Preposterously complex, interconnected, networked componentry can create nightmarish, difficult to solve problems - but this is not unique to Volvo.
Volvo V70 Reliability and Durability: Cons
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2005 4dr Wagon 240-horsepower 3.2L I6
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Warranty repairs have been more than expected. Worse than a BMW, much better than a Mercedes. Question on long term durability of transmission which is bad for a car with reputation for 250K + miles.
2003 4dr Wagon high cost of parts and repairs
2002 4dr Wagon It has a reputation of faulty transmissions. We have not owned it long enough to have any problems yet.
2000 4dr Wagon turbocharged 250hp 2.5L I5
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Have owned many Volvos. hoping this is a 'good year'... Purchased because of low miles and and overall condition.
