2005 Volvo V70 Reviews

125,000 miles on the clock and in that time only had to replace 2 lightbulbs and the battery (all normal wear and tear). Best car I've ever had, and we do put it through it's paces with some very long drives. No problems whatsoever.

This is a new addition to my family.So far,so good.Will be doing major service soon so we will see how she's held up for the last 5 years
