1998 Volvo S70 4dr Sedan


Love the car however time is not good to the interior. Leather seats in excellent shape, however the door panels have mis-shapen making it not conform to the doors. The buttons on the doors are sticky, gooey. Also I have replaced all the sensors. One being the ABS which didn't work when I got it(hadn't worked for years). Would not have replaced it if it hadn't been that the speedometer and odometer quit working as well. The check engine light comes on about every other week. Then mysteriously goes off for the remainder of the time. I will not take it to the dealer, too expensive. My husband is knowledgeable and does all my routine maintenance. He rewelded the driver door,it almost fell off.

Best Features

Has great gettup and go. A joy to drive.

Worst Features

Interior finishes need to be more durable.
