Volvo: solid with exceptions
By bilbyjg on
1999 Volvo S70 4dr Sedan
Adequate power. Pleasing engine sound. 30 mpg highway, 24 city. Very comfortable. Chintzy cupholders. Bottom of dash beginning to tear off; did a DIY with some tape and glue. Otherwise fairly solid interior. Leather seats remain in beautiful shape. Good storage space with seats forward. Beautiful styling, reminds me of the better VWs. Outstanding handling, good in emergencies. Multiple sensor malfunctions - ABS, TRACs, BRAKE light, Check Engine, Transmission, ETS (accompanied with revving engine @ idle). Have learned to ignore the less dangerous (e.g. the amber ones), as it is an older car. Very happy if you're willing to see past some of the quirks.
Seats. Mileage and power. Handling. Safety features.
