I bought the S70 almost 5 years ago and the only problem I have had with it is the battery going dead which I replaced. It has been an extremely good car for me and I plan to keep it and try for 200-300K mileage barring major unforeseen problems. I presently have 70K in to and from work driving.
Very comfortable--tight ride
Could make it a tad bigger--need improvement of windshield wiper speed and intermittency--improve cup holders
