1998 Volvo S70 T5 Turbo 4dr Sedan


I brought mine at 85k miles. There have been a few bumps in maintance. On multiple trips to Canada, the T5 drove like a champ, surprising power, good fuel economy. But the gliches, the speed sensors (no abs, no odometer, no speedo)evap system replacement. Brakes that sound like a bus. Not too cheap to own if your are not handy. But it is fun to drive. Okay in driving about town, but a hoot on the highway. Currently at 130k, and holding on.

Best Features

Pin-you-to-the-seat-power. The styling (10 years old and I still get complements), if not in the shop, a fun car to drive.

Worst Features

Well, considering the model in no longer in production, better brakes, multi-speeds on windshield wipers.
