I love this car.
I did buy it initially as a safe vehicle for my teens but it drives so much better than my 2004 xc70.
This car is a hidden gem--the 2000 model year was the last year this was made, the last year of truly Swedish Volvos, way ahead of it's time with side curtain airbags, also quite luxurious.
Waited for a gem and found a base model with less than 100K, well cared for, bought for $4400.
Have had it for 1 yr.
I like that it is a great size, runs quietly, handles well, steering assist is just right, visibility terrific, seats comfortable.

I bought my 2000 S70 used. This is my
6th Volvo. I had 4 740/760 turbo
models and they treated me great. I
bought a 99 S80 T6 and traded it for
this one. The 99 T6 was the worest car
I have owned. Lots of problems and
outrageous repair costs! The 2000 S70
All wheel drive turbo is a GREAT CAR.
Mine now has 108000 miles and runs and
looks like new! I will keep it for
another 10 years and pass it on to one
of my kids as I did with my 7 series.
As with any thru winner Volvo ended
production in 2000. So buy one when
you still can!

Comfortable, like wearing old jeans on
Saturday morning! No problems after
36k, just oil changes and the 7500 mile
visits to the dealership for routine
filters, fluid level checks, etc. No
squeaks or rattles. This car has the
best traction in the snow with winter
tires of several 4x4's I've owned.
This was my first Volvo, my wife also
since converted from a minivan to an XC.

We have been extremely satisfied with our Volvo. It has always performed up to standard for us. The controls are in good positions despite what the "Cons" for this car state. Required intervals are 7500 mi and it has not given us any major problems. The car is completely loaded with all that Volvo had to offer. Smooth yet responsive ride. Volvo has been nothing more than a pleasure to deal with. The AWD is excellent in the snow as are the Anti-lock brakes.
