I had ordered this 2000 VolvoS70 SE ASR in 1999 and picked it up from the dealer in December 1999. Right from the start my wife and I had loved everything about it the comfort, drive, style and reliability that comes with a volvo. Now 10 years old and still going strong. I have had to do some maintenance nothing major. We loved it so much that and with the addition of children, in November 2008 we had purchased the 2009 Volvo XC90 to the driveway. The volvo S70 got us hooked on volvos and we never even looked at any other make. We love our two Volvos.

I bought this car with just over 100K on it. Being my first Volvo I was unsure how it would hold up. I am pleasantly surprised, what a great car! I've put over 10K miles on it and it just purrs. Went to synthetic oil and min. 91 octane gas my mpg is 25.2 / 34. The 5 speed shfits smooth and likes to shift around 4K on the tac., a very solid car. I'm 6'2" tall and fit easily, but I don't think I'd like to long in the back seat, a bit tight back there.

Purchased 3/08 w/122K miles. Now 4/09 and 150K and no major repairs. Previous owner took good care of it, so if you shop for one make sure it was maintained. Mine has non-turbo engine, delivering 28mpg and less maint. issues. Seats are outstanding. Feels very safe inside. Nice blend of luxury and sporty looks. Car does not look 9 years old at all. Huge trunk and fold flat seats. My SE has leather, wood trim, 8 speaker stereo that sounds fantastic, heated mirrors, etc. I added a K&N drop-in air filter ($40-helps with mileage and acceleration), also added strut bar to help w/body roll in corners ($50 on ebay). I recommend for safety, comfort, looks & value: cost $35K new, mine was $3200!

i bought the Volvo S70 about back in 2002. The Volvo had a great cherry red exterior and a light tan colored interior. I was amazed that the car looked like new after driving 154,000 miles in six years. That made me worried, but I asked many mechanics and they all told me that Volvos don't give any problems, just refill the gas, change the oil every 2000 miles, and refill the water, and the car will be loyal to you. They were so right! My Volvo S70 now has over 174,000 miles and still drives and looks brand new, and it has not given me any mechanical problems ever since I bought it almost 2 years ago. This is a great car that keeps its value over time.

purchased used with 50K on odometer.. plenty of power in 5CYL engine...don't really need turbo feature..weakest interior feature is coffee holder built into the armrest. brakes are above average as in body.Very reliable car in all types of climate..great seats for long drives

Great car except for the major problem that Ford inherited with the emission system's Electronic Throttle Assembly. Fortunately, Class Action lawsuit allows owners to have it fixed for free up to 200,000 miles saving you $1,000. Kudos to Ford/Volvo for doing the right thing! Handles well and is great for long drives. Front end rides rough over bumps but maybe because I'm used to SUV tires.
