beautifull high dollar piece of shiitt to say the least, it cost 35,000.00 new and today 10 yrs later with 130,000 miles its only worth 4,600. omg.. the power sterring has been replaced, the radiator,the convertible top was 3,500 replaced, the two front seats were replaced 3,700
all the trim buttons are popping off/breaking
please..... can you say throw your money out the window?????
everything possible has went wrong with this piece of junk.....
the dealership is saying my transmission is bad at 129,413 miles on it. and my wife has drove it since we bought it. it has never been run hard or anything that could harm it. it was running fine before we had the fluid changed but now it wont change into 3rd gear. they claim "it happens"
other c70 owners agree this is one beautifull high dollar piece of shiit that will not last or hold a value, now im seeing why the value drops so low so fast...... please do yourself a favor and dont ever buy a de-solvo. because your investment will disolve right infront of your eyes....
dont change the transmission fluid or the junker might not ever drive again.. at 129,000 miles this 35,000 piece of shit will go down in history/youtube when i light it on fire and drive it into the river. it is a PIECE OF SHIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
youd feel better if you just gave the money away instead of knowing you had faith in volvo and got a 35,000.00 fuckkin..
