Good car for Volvo savvy enthusiast
By VolvoRottie on
1998 Volvo V70 T5 Turbo 4dr Wagon
Purchased at repo auction and obtained service recs from selling dealer. In time owned, did upgrade to ceramic brake pads and top of the line rotors at minimum cost as a DIY job (I'm a woman!). ABS module out per usual paid $150 to get it fixed - now perfect. Oil changes using Mobil 1 and mann filters. That's it. Now finally a tune up for less than $100 in parts again DIY. This car rocks. Mine is loaded and other than very routine maintenance, knock on wood, it's been good. This year must recharge the Freon.
Seats, handling, solid build, quality of leather topnotch, ride quality harsh but sporty as expected.
ABS module to eliminate these gripes. Easier to get into engine compartment. other than that nothing. Love the car.
