1998 Volvo V70 XC 4dr Wagon AWD

Review

This is my 4th Volvo and it is definitely a "love/hate" relationship. When all is good, I love it. It's the most comfortable car I've ever owned. The heated seats are sublime on a cold Colorado morning. But just too many small problems that indicate poor design and engineering. I've replaced, engine mounts, suspension, brake rotors, check engine lights, turbo seals, and am holding my breath now that my extended warranty has expired. I'll keep it as long as it doesn't get too expensive, then I'll probably jump to an Audi or maybe a good 'ole dependable Subaru! Too bad for Volvo, I think we all want to stick with them, but they just seem to have lost their focus.

Favorite Features

Most comfortable seats in any car I've ever owned. Runs great, fuel economy is good. Nice stereo, and a classy looking wagon.

Suggested Improvements

Need to improve overall durability of the car. Just too many recurring repairs to things that should not break!
