1999 Volvo S70 T5 Turbo 4dr Sedan

Review

This vehicle is a pure pleasure to drive. The seats are very comfortable on long drives & trips. The turbo hesitates before kicking-in, but the power will surprise you for a five cylinder engine. Had only one major headache, difficulty starting that took over four visits and multi-days at the dealer before the problem was diagnosed and repaired. If you can avoid the dealership service, please do. Regular service averages about $300 and major service about $800. This doesn't include the big one at 60000 miles (timing belt).

Favorite Features

Great power for a five cylinder. Decent gas mileage. Comfortable seating. Traction control is great on icy roads. Front wheel drive climbs great on hills, but tough on tires. Air condition is very efficent for both front and rear passengers with dual climate control.

Suggested Improvements

Move the Traction control button, possibly to the dashboard.
