Ten years ago today I took delivery of my new 2002 V70XC

Not the most reliable or cheapest car that I had ever owned, but definitely not the worst in either respect either and certainly the one that has given me the most enjoyment owning and driving, to the extent that I am totally at a loss as to what I will replace it with when the time comes ... which, I hope, is not soon.

So, happy birthday to my XC70. Here's to many great miles past and many more in future!

And thanks to the many contributors to this forum - you have halped to make the experience great with advice to minimise the pain (expenses) ... most of all, saving my gearbox through regular flushing (Gibbons method)!
