1998 Volvo S70 GLT Turbo 4dr Sedan


I was excited when buying my Volvo, but
5.3 yrs. later at only 55000 miles,
with 20 trips to the dealer: it's on
its 3rd battery, front rotors replaced
at low mileage, rear engine oil seal
leakage, interior door panel
coverings "bubbled", numerous headlamp
replacements and turn signal bulbs
(prior to recall), windshield is pitted
(!!), and it eats tires. Except for
one battery, it was all after the
warranty expired. Your Volvo will last
a long time...provided you replace
every part at least once. Drive it for
3 years and then go to Toyota, Nissan,
or Honda.

Best Features

Body styling (rear spoiler does it), handling, power.

Worst Features

Manufacturer accountability towards product flaws must improve. If the dealership uses the Volvo logo, they ARE Volvo. When the going gets tough the dealer points at the manufacturer with no customer assist.
