1998 Volvo S70 GLT Turbo 4dr Sedan

Review

I bought my current S70 on Ebay and having been holding my breath about the car for the last year. Overall, the experience has been good, but the A/C evaporator had to be changed (fortunately under warranty) and the battery had to be replaced recently. The GLT has a nice combination of turbo power with very predictable handling. Little or no turbo lag compared to turbo Saabs I have owned in the past. Interior fit and finish is a little cheap compared to Japanese cars in the same price range. I suspect the brake rotors will have to be changed soon. Be sure to service the transmission in spite of Volvo's ridiculous maintenance suggestion.

Favorite Features

SEATS! Low pressure turbo performance. Handling. Fuel economy.

Suggested Improvements

Better interior fit and finish. Better front brakes (too much dust) and questionable rotor life.
