1999 Volvo V70 4dr Wagon

Review

I bought this used from the original owner for my son as his first car. I bought it because of its reputation as a safe car. What a piece of junk. I had the ABS module rebuilt ($170) because of dash lights and performance issues related to it. Dealer would have wanted close to $800 to fix - robbers. Shortly thereafter, it was stalling intermittently. Lo and behold, I needed to replace the ETM module (which was a Volvo defect) but it was done for free, however needed to replace the pedal assembly since it was continuing to stall ($235). Bottom line - it is a super expensive car to maintain and I regret buying it for my son. It will send me to the poor house if I keep it. Safe but costly.

Best Features

Drives like a tank and feels safe. Seats are very comfortable. Excellent premium sound system. Black color. Although classified as a station wagon, does not really look like one. Nice looking car my son enjoys, except for the problems listed.
