Lots of time & money for maintenance
By MoMoney on
1998 Volvo S70 GLT Turbo 4dr Sedan
The car has frequent problems with
various lights(brake, interior, etc)
as well as frequent trips to the
dealer for mostly minor indicator
light problems (ABS/Tracs off etc.) To
change the light bulb on the gear
shifter cost $70. We also had to get
all 4 door panels replaced (no charge)
because the leather was separating
from the panel. Maintenance at the
dealer is expensive & once you have to
start replacing stuff (brakes/rear
only $450) and shocks/struts in our
case @65M for ~$1100. New computer
$700. Would not buy another Volvo. Non-
dealer can't service many things.
Service mgr. said that we should have
bought extended warranty!
It handles well and is comfortable.
Make diagnostic systems available to
non-dealers to bring service costs
down. Longer lasting components. Wear
and replacement parts seems to be more
frequent than other cars we own
(Acura). Since so many components
failed on this car (Computer, lights)
warranty should be longer.
