The AWD is the weak point. I've got a 2000 V70 AWD, lovely car, power,
comfort and massive load space. However, since the splined sleeve stripped
out its been a front wheel spinning nightmare when the roads are slippery.
If you're lucky, the damage is restricted to the sleeve which is around
GBP100 but if you're not (like myself) you'll be looking at either a
replacement angle gear, or a gearbox output shaft.
