Best estate car you can buy
Engine management system failed 2 times resulting in 2 breakdowns one being on outside lane of motorway. Also giving of various false warnings.
This V70 is a great car to drive although I have had some electrical problems with it, fuel consumption is excellent even although I'm using it as a taxi average m.p.g. in city is 38 and out of town is around 50 m.p.g.
It is the 2006 model year and it's the 185bhp (6speed).
The boot space is massive, and has lots of room for bags and cases, even with 4 passengers in it.
After been told by my dealer that they have not had faults with the V70, I find it hard to believe after reading comments on this site and a few others. It would be intresting if anyone could back me up on this, as there ARE problems relating to the V70.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
