2000 Volvo V70 from North America
A solid, comfortable car
Had a P0442 OBDII code for small leak in EVAP system. I am working on this. May have been a loose gas cap or a small leak in a hose. I'm thinking it's in the J hose on the vapor canister. No big deal.
We bought this car used. However, it looks and drives like new. The car came with new tires, a new timing belt and a complete service.
Our car has leather seats that are very comfortable. The stereo is awesome.
Overall, we are really liking this car and believe it to be the most comfortable car we have ever owned. Although our car is a non-turbo, it has plenty of power for our needs, and feels stronger than all of our previous Volvos.
This is our fourth Volvo. The first three were pre-Ford cars. We were a little hesitant to buy a Ford-Volvo, but so far have really been impressed by this car.
We tend to keep Volvos till they have about 200,000 miles on them. We are counting on this car to do the same.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

The V70 you have there is a good car. Look after it properly and I can't see any reason to why it won't do 200,000 miles. Especially as yours in the non-turbo model. Good luck and enjoy your new car (I love mine!)

Update, I found the leak on a small vacuum line connected to the Vapor Canister. I had some vacuum line in my tool box and fixed this issue for free. Nothing else wrong. I would reiterate that this is the most comfortable car that I have ever owned. My work car is a brand new Chevy Impala. The Volvo is way more comfortable even with 100,000 miles on it.
