Lots of problems along the way
By Mercedes/next on


1998 Volvo S70 4dr Sedan


In general I like the car. However, I
have had some problems....frequent
bulb changes, three batteries (battery
just goes dead, replace it and it is
fine for 1.5 to 2 years and then it
goes again, leather on all inside door
panel is puckered (Volvo refuses to
repair even though this is clearly
their responsibility), wears tires
very quickly, problems early on with
the brakes. Handles well. I would
probably not purchase another Volvo
because of Volvo's arrogance in not
agreeeing to repair the problem with
the glue on the inside door panels.
Dealer very difficult to deal with and
not customer friendly.

Worst Features

Improve electrical system and the problem with the glue that holds the leather in place.
