Volvo's Timeless Flagship
By papawilli on
1998 Volvo S90 4dr Sedan
I found this one owner Volvo with only 72K on it, absolutely flawless. As expected, the price was a bit high, however it is worth every dime! Having had two prior Volvos, we had certain expectations with this one, and it has surpassed them all. Classic styling, old-world craftsmanship in its attention to detail assembly, excellent performance and handling, easily the nicest, most driveable vehicle we've had in over 30 years, including a Cadillac. I would highly recommend this vehicle to anyone looking for a solid, reliable car that can be driven for many years. The newer Ford / Volvos have nothing over this "last of the big rear wheel drive" true Swedish pieces of art. A real pleasure.
The classic design with its clean concise lines. The incredibly plush leather interior. The comfort and support of the highly reputable Volvo seating. The exceptional mileage for a vehicle of this size. Precise handling.
The only recommendation I would offer is the placement of the door lock switch to a place a bit more accessible to the driver, where one doesn't have to reach under and around the steering wheel. Beyond that, I would leave it just as it is, a masterful combination of craftsmanship and performance.
