1998 Volvo S70 GLT Turbo 4dr Sedan

Review

I was excited when buying my Volvo, but 5.3 yrs. later at only 55000 miles, with 20 trips to the dealer: it's on its 3rd battery, front rotors replaced at low mileage, rear engine oil seal leakage, interior door panel coverings "bubbled", numerous headlamp replacements and turn signal bulbs (prior to recall), windshield is pitted (!!), and it eats tires. Except for one battery, it was all after the warranty expired. Your Volvo will last a long time...provided you replace every part at least once. Drive it for 3 years and then go to Toyota, Nissan, or Honda.

Best Features

Body styling (rear spoiler does it), handling, power.

Worst Features

Manufacturer accountability towards product flaws must improve. If the dealership uses the Volvo logo, they ARE Volvo. When the going gets tough the dealer points at the manufacturer with no customer assist.
