"like a rock"

Vehicle: 2000 Volvo S70 4dr Sedan

My lawyer daughter talked me into my first Volvo for safety resons and I'm glad she did but for other reasons! Non-turbo has plenty of power for all highway situations. Gas economy is 23MPG. I'm happy with this at 150,000 on the odometer. Will go to 250 with this "baby". Very reliable in severe weather, especially snow. Would highly recomend as a used car buy!

Best used car i ever

Vehicle: 2000 Volvo S70 4dr Sedan

This is my 3rd Volvo and there is a reason that I keep buying them, and that reason is reliability. This S70 T5 is great. It's good on gas, comfortable and fun to drive, and it's fast. I love to hear the turbo kick in. If I buy another car guess what... Volvo.




Can i get better gas

Love this car. Roomy inside,wish it had heaed seats since it has leather. Our volvo is sturdy around corners and handles like a dream minus when you hit a bump. I am used to having an suv and miss having the room in the back for my work supplies, but I had to park my Escalade due to crazy gas prices. That baby gets 17mpg. I ge 23mpg in town and would like to see if I can get alittle better gas mileage out of it. If anyone has any ideas send me and e-mail.

Great auto! Reliable and great gas mileage (25/30). Great exterior due to being kept in garage. All repair/inspection records available. I'm ready to buy a 2007 Volvo.

Low reliability

by on
Vehicle: 2000 Volvo S70 4dr Sedan

Good Sturdy car, Safe, However it is difficullt to maintain. While changing oil and filters -- it needs special internal filter and needs special wrench. It forces you to go to a dealer for oil changes. No dip stick for checking transmission fluid. Ease of maintenance always increases a car's reliabilty. Engine hot light comes on occasionally while the temp gauge reads normal and with full antifreeze. The light goes off only after an overnight cooling. The electronic throttle light comes on and the engine stalls. Volvo has not been able to explain the problem. The dealer will clean the throttle butterfly but it might or might not fix the problem. Volvo refuses to issue a recall.

Sure and steady

Vehicle: 2000 Volvo S70 4dr Sedan

I have owned my S70 for 5 years. Its been very reliable, great gas mileage, and very comfortable seats. However, it has severe blind spots making it tough to change lanes. And forget the outside rearview mirrors - no help with the blind spots. The base engine has more than enough power and runs on mid- grade gas. Cloth seats are difficult to keep clean. This is a great car, but watch those blind spots.
