2002 Volvo V70 from North America
Probably should have stayed with the 240
Well, the big issue is the transmission, which has jerked me around (literally) for about 5,000 miles. It was then that the dealer told me I'd need a new tranny (!) after spending $500 to replace the transmission fluid. Otherwise it always seems to need something -- never have I taken it in for an inspection and emerged unharmed. Plus the parts are ridiculously expensive and insurance is too.
Rides nice and it's really safe.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
