1998 Volvo V70 XC 4dr Wagon AWD


We have owned this car for a year and half. It is a competent car. The extended Volvo warrenty seems useless though as nothing seems to be covered under it when you really get into it. There have been seveal small electrical problems that seem surprising and unecessary like the emergency flasher reley failing (not covered and $75 ) replacement. The cabin lights only work sparadically when you opent he door. Our 10 year old Mercedes wagon has had far fewer problems, and has been all over the world with us. Our 1986 240 wagon was more reliable than the XC but neither ever stranded us by the roadside.

Best Features

The all wheel drive may be good, but front wheel drive would be adequate probably with better gas mileage. Front seats are really comfortable. The Heat/Cooling seems really great. Third seat works great. I like the steering and brakes,

Worst Features

The ride is rough thats probably the four wheel drive. The electrical system needs work to improve longevity and quality. In general the quality of the car is lower than the 240 clearly
