    Default What year be your car?

    been a while since we did this and I'm thinking it'd be best to make it a fresh one so as not to skew the stats so here we go.

    And for the record, I'm 2001 and of course still loving every drive...

    Well, it's about time Tay! Been a while since we've seen multiple posts from ya. I guess work and being an expectant father has a lot to do with that. Great to see you back in form.

    indeed good to be back, for a while at least in typing form... But don't think that means I've not been here. I check all the time but just don't have new information to offer... Either that or the time to type out what it is I do have to say

    That said though, I'm a gonna have to get the ole XC cleaned up for a photo shoot. As mentioned over in the OT, Ive got the camera back so looking forward to taking some new shots

    Talk to you soon and at that... Maybe get on MSN eh?... Haven't seen ya around for quite some time

    Road Trip! Road Trip!

    It's feeling like spring out there.
    Taylor is back.

    It must be time to plan a PNW XC tour.

    Now if I could only get some time off!

    We've not had any major problems whatsoever. However, it currently is in the dealership for a rear dampening something-or-other. It is still under warranty and is getting fixed. I'll ask about this in another thread.

    Default MY2003 running very smoothly

    Hi guys:

    Our MY2003 XC70 is rolling along very smoothly thank you very much. No problems to speak about other than the normal trival stuff.

    The plastic grab handle needs TLC to avoid chipping. I've had some thre nicks in it so far and have taken care of it using a Sharpie pen (silver ink) which does a super job of hiding the small nicks.

    At almost 40,000 miles we still have decent tread on the Scorpian OEM tires.

    I've been running it with reg gas these days because of the gas prices and it seems to run AOK. If the car is to be driven hard with up and down grades I switch temporarily to prem gas though.

    Had upper engine mount replaced and front rubber strip at leading edge of hood replaced as original lost its adhesive hold.

    Some idiot rip off passenger side fender and front bumper while wife driving and that was repaired without too much ado. The paint job on the new fender is a perfect match and body shop said Volvo does a better paint job than most other auto manufacturers and that actually makes it harder to match up wrt the orange peel finish.

    People who ride with us always comment on the car still looking new after some 3 years.

    Taylor: The survey might get skewed in favor of newer model years as the members with older models tend to drop off after some 2-3 years.

    Thumbs up MY 2003 at 61,000 miles

    My 2003 is running great.

    I've had to replace the tires and just noticed the door seal is wearing where I get in and out of the drivers side. Too many tight parking slots around here.

    It's still the finest car I've ever had. Not that I'm prejudiced.

    Thumbs up Still a happy owner!

    As some of you may know, I've bought my XC used at 73,000 km. The first year of ownership was somewhat a pain in the neck on some unexpected repairs like rear wheel hubs at 90,000 km (still haven't swallowed that one... ) and front suspension table bushings.

    But to be honest, with almost 140,000 km on the clock, I've only spent CDN$633.08 (exactly ) since 01/01/2005, mostly on scheduled maintenance, including oil change, tire swap, and ... some bulbs!

    Matter of fact, I think I spent more on car wash and detailing stuf "to pet my XC" as Mrs. R. would say!
