Vehicle: 1998 Volvo S70 4dr Sedan

Steering failed, developed an oil & radiator leak past 100k. ABS/TRACS failed immediately. The door hinges on driver and passenger both failed. One pangs loudly at every catch, the other swings like a household door with no catch. The hydraulics in the trunk have failed completely. Speakers were wired poorly- all flicker on and off (not blown out). The stereo has you change CD's in the *trunk* (of all places) 0-60 time is longer than 11 seconds on the base model, but still gets terrible MPG (21 average for the automatic, even when babying it) Three star safety rating in the '90s, so it's not even very safe e-brake broken Good interior storage space, nice leather, good seats
