Faulty Armrests
By Houston Fwy driver on


1998 Volvo S70 GLT Turbo 4dr Sedan


60 days after purchase (8/02), I
noticed that the armrest vinyl on three
of the four doors
was "bubbling" "delaminating" and
otherwise separating from the armrest.
Despite being a "certified pre-owned"
car, neither the dealer nor the corp.
will touch this obvious and apparently
known defect in materials/manufacturing
in this otherwise excellent car. As a
15-year customer, I want to remain
loyal, but I will likely switch brands
next time around.

Best Features

Overall, the interior is nicely configured and the seat comfort is the best.

Worst Features

Back your products and repair/replace the defective armrests! Cupholders have a cheap feel and are only marginally functional, not to mention cutting off access to the center glove compartment when in use. The interior wood finishes are nice, but have a "glued on" appearance.
