1997 Volvo V70 Cross Country 2.4 low pressure turbo


Indestructible (when maintained)


I replaced the rear shocks, driver's window switch, rear wiper motor, one wheel bearing... That's it! Outside of regular maintenance, including:

Oil and filter

Timing belt

Upper motor mount

Radiator flush

Transmission flush

Brake pads, rotors and hoses


Exhaust flange

One inner tie rod end (because I couldn't grease it regularly)

General Comments:

317,000 and still runs like the day I bought this car.

This car is unbelievable, and is one of the toughest cars I have ever owned! I am confident I will put another 100-200k or more km on this car!

This car runs like a charm, and my interior shows almost NO signs of wear!!!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
