great ride, expensive maintenace
By Robbie on
1999 Volvo S70 4dr Sedan
Bought this car used with 79,000 miles on it. My wife and I love this car at first. The ride was far above other sedans we had driven. Even the standard 5 cyl. has good pickup and can really go at high speeds. We love the look and design as well. The maintenance has been a different story. When I bought the car it only had one owner before me and the service manual was beautiful all stamped by cert. volvo. I felt good when I left the lot. Not 1 week went by and window switch went out ($200). Next it was a vacuum thing ($200). We kept up with the maintenance as well which is average $400 a pop. 2 oxy sensors ($500) and a/c evap. ($1000). Sold vehicle in 2006. great drive not reliable
Handling, best ride of any car (honda, toyota, or nissan). Great interior look. Love the leather and woodgrain.
Reliability. Terrible Cup holders!!! Hard to justify Spending all that money on maintaining and still having so many problems. With honda and the others its change oil and timing belt and get many, many miles. Rather have reliability than luxury at this cost.
