Great car!

1998 Volvo S70 4dr Sedan


I was surprised to see all the negative reviews on my car! I bought it 4 years ago with 80k miles on it and it just turned 160k last week. I drive about 70 hwy miles/day. No major repairs so far. Incredibly reliable car. Left it at the airport during a recent ice storm. When I returned, it had been coated with about 4 - 6 inches of ice for a couple of days. When I finally got into the car it started up immediately! The bulbs were a nuisance at first, but I now just keep a few extra in my trunk (pretty cheap). Only takes a minute to replace. I probably change a bulb every 4 or 5 months. Hope to get another couple years out of it, but even if I don't it has served me well.

Best Features

very comfy interior for long drives, nice stereo, great climate control, decent gas mileage for its size.

Worst Features

bulbs are a nuisance, ABS light is on, but it hasn't noticeably affected the breaking ability & mechanic says its still very safe without ABS.
