1998 Volvo V70 XC 4dr Wagon AWD

Review

This is my 2nd Volvo. I love how it drives. Powerful, very comfortable. I've owned this car for 4 yrs and 6 days, just out of warranty. The worst problems have been the brakes, needs new brakes every 15-20K (unlike my other Volvo), a complete AC compressor replacement, a broken electric seat. Most annoying, the Check Engine light on if the gas cap is not replaced properly. The dealer needs to reset the computer when this happens. I'm 6 days past my warranty and the Check Engine light is on. If it isn't the gas cap, is the dealer willing to help? No. I'm afraid most of my dissatifaction is the dealer. I'm trading for better service. If your city has only one Volvo dealer, beware.

Favorite Features

Cloth/leather combo heated seats (don't like all leather-too hot in summer), Extra couple of inches of ground clearance, and it just feels safe.

Suggested Improvements

Better customer service, solution to the bad braking system on this model and the gas cap/check engine light quirk.
