    In Australia the 2001-2007 model only ever got OK reviews due to it not being a "drivers car". Sheese, I mean if I wanted a drivers car I'd be looking at sports cars not estates. What the XC70 did...

    As far as I'm aware the '03 has a bosch ETM which is not the piece of crap that the MM ETM of 01 and 02 is. I assume your car is the 2.5 turbo (rather than the 2.4 turbo)?

    If it was an 01 or 02 I'd say a faulty ETM is a possibility. Since it's a 03 though I have no idea, sounds like you need a trip to a service center.

    I currently take my 01 XC70 to Bilia for servicing in Melbourne (Australia). Their service is first class but the servicing and repair costs are getting really hard to swallow ($8k this past FY).

    My sympathies.

    My 01 XC70 has cost $6,500 (~$5,000 US) in repairs just this month. These cars are not cheap to own, but they are fantastic when running.
