1998 Volvo V70 Turbo 4dr Wagon AWD

Review

This car is an engineering marvel as far as the fit, finish and drive are concerned. Before buying ensure there are no oil leaks a the oil return line is often trouble. The part online is $90 ($120 at dealer), and an easy do it yourself. The traction control module is notorously flaky. Test by slamming on breaks and then gas on gravel or sand before buying. If the TRACS or ABS lights come on, run. Part alone is $800, though you can trade your old one in online and get a rebuilt one for about $150 (see www.swedespeed.com forum). Check out Internet Volvo forums before heading in for repair as many high $ repairs are actually a $40 sensor gone bad.

Best Features

Great seats, and seat heaters. Outstanding brakes and acceleration. Great lights and windshield tinting (tinting around mirror between visors helps wonderfully on sunny mornings driving East or evenings driving West! Best stock sound system of any car, period!

Worst Features

Too late, the car is 15 years old!
