Volvo V70 2nd Gen 2000 - 2007 - Used, advantages, disadvantages

Volvo V70

Volvo V70

The second generation Volvo V70 was introduced in 2000 as a complete redesign and remained on the market until 2007. It was made in collaboration with Ford, and its support has been used in other Ford models. It is only offered as a station wagon version.

The differences from the first generation are huge. With the rear seats lower, the boot can be increased to 1641 liters in front-drive models. Trunk volume is slightly reduced in all-wheel drive models. Driving in the Volvo V4 is very comfortable and boasts excellent towing power of up to 70kg.

Standard safety equipment Volvo V70 includes 6 airbags, ABS i ESP, and scored 4 out of 5 stars on the Euro NCAP test.

The engines on offer are five-cylinder petrols and diesels while the most powerful versions are boosted by turbochargers. Gasoline engines develop from 140 to 260 hp while the most powerful petrol engine develops 300 hp. Diesel engines develop from 126 to 185 hp. A special engine on offer is an engine that can be used on gasoline, but also on gas and develops 140 hp and is quite rare in the used car market.

The Volvo V70 is the opposite of models of the same brand when it comes to reliability. Problems are caused by the car's ignition system, alternators, the fuel injection system and the electronics of the engine itself. The engine often breaks the timing belt, causing further engine failure. Diesel turbochargers are also known to break down.
In addition to lighting failures, there are problems with the suspension, where the front axle steering joints are being worn intensely. The rust resistance is very good and the car is very resistant to it.

Average consumption depends largely on the choice of engine. Weak diesel engines consume about 6 liters of 100km, while stronger engines consume about 8 liters for the same distance. Gasoline engines always consume a minimum of 10 liters per 100km, and stronger engines and more.
