1998 Volvo V70 XC 4dr Wagon AWD

Review

We replaced our first used Volvo, an 850 Wagon, with this newer(and better?) model only to find that it is an over- engineered tempermental computer with 4WD. It's performance is very good. I love being able to accelerate rapidly from 70 mph around a semi with no problem, and wet/snow performance is great. BUT...I am constantly starring at that @#*& 'check engine' light. It can illuminate for anything from not replacing the gas cap securely, to an emission control sensor, wire, computer, to who knows what. Cruise control failed after one year and minimal use, and it took 3 trips to dealer to get it fixed. Once the warranty expires, watch out!

Worst Features

De-sensitize the 'check-engine' light. A real tilt feature on the steering column. Link the seats, mirrors and radio to remote entry memory.
