Odd, but comfortable
By techie on
2000 Volvo S70 GLT SE Turbo 4dr Sedan
We bought this car for the safety and the incredibly comfortable seats, but we wouldn't buy another one. It has odd quirks, like the junky cupholders in the front and the lack of any trunk light, that are annoying for a car at this price level. The dangerous trouble with the jerky electronic throttle (ETS) really scared us, especially when we got the bill for the repair. Fortunately, Volvo did the right thing and reimbursed us for the repair and, at least at first, warrantied it for life. However the class action suit for this problem seems to indicate a shorter warranty. It's now a recall, so get it fixed before it stops working altogether.
Heated leather seats, safety, moonroof.
Cupholders, trunk light, light bulb longevity, warranty the throttle system repairs for life, trunk latch seems to pop open on its own sometimes.
