This is my 2nd Volvo. Before, I had a
1986 Volvo 740 GLE. I got 208,925 miles
on that baby. And I would still have it
if my son didn't total it in a car
accident. The S70 is not as sturdy as
the 740 was. There are too many
electrical components to the S70 and I
believe that is the problem. The
mechanics are not fully trained on
these new computer circuits and chips.
Overall, I love the power of my S70.
And, yes, you do tend to hear more
highway noise then my previous Volvo
740 GLE. And, I agree the cup holders
are a joke for such classy car.
My favorite is the inside trunk and
gasoline latch. I also love the console
and my leather seats.
The seat warmers need to be have a
med/low feature and should click off
automatically after seats are warm.
Need better cupholders. Also, need the
S70 front bumper to be higher from the
ground for parking. Also, the car
itself needs to be raised a little high
from the ground.
