Last weekend my V70R hit 100,000. I took delivery on Dec 23, 2003 with 7 miles. Are there are more 100,000 club R members out there?

Just 67,000 miles, but the goal is to certainly get 100k in miles.<br>

Lets just say I was glad I bought the extended warranty. I experienced many of the issues people have reported here with suspension, etc. <p>The trick and my hope is that none of the things that have been repaired previously need repair again.<p>And the engine has been super. As a car, the only issue has been the bearing in the fan A/C motor, which they replaced upon the VIP<p>My G/F loves the car as do I. We are hoping that this is less than its half life<br>

106,000. The low 100's is when my Audi and VW became haunted with incurable and expensice electrical gremlins and mechanical issues. I'm curious to see how the Volvo stacks up to the troublesome VW products (although I loved the Audi ride. Just not worth the agg.)

Re: 2004 V70R joins 100,000 mile club (GGV70R)

Guess I need to get driving too. My 04 VR just rolled over to 57,000. But I did a few trips from Florida to Indiana this year. The wife on the other hand drives her 04 SR a bit more, she's about to 80,000. They haven't been trouble free, but with CPO to take care of the issues, I don't have any thing bad to say about them. I hope to keep the VR till my boy gets ready to drive, and that's about 15 years from now!

Re: 2004 V70R joins 100,000 mile club (Blurry)

Nice to hear these high numbers!<br>Just rolled over 60K and getting ready to do the service - thanks to SS - i'll do it myself. Also have to do the head gaskets on my disco - 18 hr job but I love doing that kinda work myself.<p>I am thinking 40K more then she goes into the garage to be the new Queen - hopefully by then someone will have done the V8 RWD conversion and posted it on SS! I know it can be done!<p>Nothing like brute force and ignorance <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">
