ReviewWe've owned Volvo for years, and traded a 1988 740 Turbo for our current 1997 960 in September 2001.
Our current mileage is 169,000, and other than routine maintenance, our car has been reliable, comfortable and trouble-free.
Yes, the plastic interior bits do tend to fall off and the sunroof leaks, but the car's long-distance comfort, safety, and high spec make it an ideal purchase for those on a budget who desire a safe, solid and agile vehicle.
The key is to find a good mechanic who specializes and let him look after the maintenance.
Running costs are much less than a Mercedes or BMW.
We average 20mpg city/26 hwy.
The '98 V70 is the same car, and the last year for this body style.
Best Featuresrear-wheel drive, long-distance comfort, excellent seats, capacious cargo capacity, good ergonomics, reasonably moderate to service.
Worst Featuresplastic bits break, sunroof can leak, brakes can be an issue, but mine have had no problems.
