1998 Volvo S70 T5 Turbo 4dr Sedan
Review
I bought this car as my first car. It has 174K on the odometer. Performance- wise, once the turbo gets spooled up, you'd better hold on to something. It has the rare 5 speed manual and this car really moves. Buried the speedometer in 5th gear just after shifting from 4th and she still had more to go. The stock sport suspension is harder than the GLT, GT, or Base, and is beautiful around tight corners, but is treacherous for leisure driving. Very bumpy. The cars seats are absolutely amazing. The leather seats in my dads 04 Passat feel like hard plastic chairs compared to mine. Gas mileage could be a little better. Definitely a good car once its broken in.
