I am currently in the market for a wagon and am thinking about buying a used (early 2000s) XC70.

I have seen a couple on CL and have talked with the local mechanic at the Volvo place who has given me some direction on what to look for / avoid.

Any additional info would be appreciated and is this a car I should even be considering? Will it be a fortune to maintain? Should I ride my bike to work instead????

Thanks!

Pay your local Volvo mechanic to look over any car you're considering before you purchase?
The best way to keep costs low on these volvos is to do as much work as possible yourself!

Alright - Great. I am def. taking whatever I'm looking at for an inspection with the local Volvo Mechanic.

This week / weekend I am checking out an 01 and an 03 - they both have about 130,000 miles and look to be in good shape

Pass on the 01. They have many more problems than the 03 such as ETM issues and Transmission Issues.
