Now I traded a 2003 S40 because my family grew and the brakes were suspect. I traded for a 1999 used Volvo V70 from a Ford Dealership in June of '04 thinking that since I already had an existing relationship things would go smoothly. I am still trying to figure out the bumper to bumper sales pitch. First 6 months were good. The second 6 months I've dropped $1,500.00 on brakes (front/rear), rotors,transmission fluid and battery replacement. $200 for a battery cable? I've had some issues with the key staying stuck in the ignition upon shutting off the engine. I am going to make a summer trip to the East Coast and see how this vehicle responds. Stay tuned.
Stereo system and leather seats. Freeway acceleration.
Better brakes. Cup holder is a bad joke. A/C is questionable.
