1998 Volvo S70 GT 4dr Sedan

Review

This Volvo is definitely not one of the better products Volvo has made. My car is always in the shop and has multiple electrical and computer problems (there are 7 computers in it, none of them very reliable). The engine is fairly reliable. Domestic and Japanese cars have better records. I paid about $30,000 for this car and have put in about $25,000 in repairs. So basically, my car has become a $55,000 car over 9 years. I probably should have tried another brand, but with past experience of Volvo's reputation of safety and reliability, I thought this would be good. It was a mistake. Avoid this car if you can. Or buy it cheap since it doesn't really hold value anyway.

Favorite Features

The seats are very comfortable. Not too soft like some American car makers and not too hard like the German cars.

Suggested Improvements

It has a stiff and jiggly ride and exhibits mild torque steer. The ride is extremely uncomfortable while the seats are perfect.
