1998 Volvo S70 GLT Turbo 4dr Sedan

Review

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!

Favorite Features

It handles well and is comfortable.

Suggested Improvements

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.
