1999 Volvo V70 GLT Turbo 4dr Wagon

Review

My 2nd Volvo Wagon. Surprised to find it listed as a luxury car. The tan on my leather wrapped steering wheel comes off on my hand. I drive with my right hand on the passenger seat to keep it from rattling and the car has a rough idle(dealer says idle is "normal"). The V70 has distinguished itself by racking up over $1,500 in non-routine- maintainance costs in the seven months since the warranty expired. Other components had failed under the warranty period. Now that Subaru has turbocharged the Forester and is offering a leather package, guess what my next wagon will be? Originally bought a Volvo because of the reputation for safety AND durability.

Best Features

Comfortable seats, size of car.

Worst Features

Quality design, quality parts, and quality control have become "minimum" requirements for survival in the consumer marketplace. Suggest Volvo tries to achieve the minimum.
