    V70 Volvo owners. I have an opportunity to purchase this wagon (Automatic
    trans., 6 cylinder, AWD) with 64k miles (it was a leased vehicle).

    Am curious to hear from volvo owners how they like this model year (or
    similar). Is this a reliable volvo model? Are there any common problems I
    should be made aware? Any feedback would be most appreciated.

    Friends of mine have a 2001 V70 (same car, just 1 year older, and not
    AWD)... No major issues with the exception of the DSTC system, which has
    been fixed.

    They have 140K Kms on it.... Just normal maintenance stuff, and a few
    software updates.

    BTW it's a 5-cylinder engine, not 6.

    As far as I know, the '02 V70 is good. I have a '99 and love it.

    6 cyl ? I thought that they had retained the 2.4L 5 cyl ?

  4. It is a 5 cylinder engine. I am only one voice, but I have had a lot
    of things go wrong with my 98 V70. It needed a tow out when the
    starter assembly broke. 2 window motors. and lately, on a 15 minute
    ride to work, not even on a highway, it started emitting fumes. The
    radiator blew, and they made me replace a head gasket and other stuff
    to the tune of $3000!!!
    the car only has 80K. I have not been happy with it. Too much
    maintanence. Not a model of reliability.
