Very good and economic car


The petrol pump crash at 220000km, i find some oil leaks at the power steering gear at 230000km.

Just minor problems at electric mirrors, but I think that was due the freezing in winter time.

General Comments:

Usually I drive long ways, and with this car is very comfortable.

It is a good car, and I really like this model. I have 4 cars like this and I don't think that I will sell them.

I intend to buy a new V70XC. If volvo still do this kind of cars!!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
