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.
SEATS! Low pressure turbo performance.
Handling. Fuel economy.
Better interior fit and finish. Better
front brakes (too much dust) and
questionable rotor life.
