1998 Volvo S70 4dr Sedan


Bought used S70 in 1998 and still
driving it. Plan to keep it until it
falls apart, but doesn't look like
that will happen anytime soon. Has
95,000 miles currently, and has never
had one repair - yes, you read
correctly - zero repairs. I take it to
the dealer every 5,000 miles
religiously for factory recommended
maintenance. I wonder how many of the
other drivers who are experiencing
problems have the factory recommended
maintenance performed. By the way, the
same day I bought my second Volvo, I
met a lady customer at the dealership
who was also purchasing a new S70 the
same day-she traded in a 10 year old
Volvo with 265,000 miles on it.

Best Features

Drivers seat perfection! Does Volvo make office/home chairs??? My dealer service department is unbelieveable! They bend over backwards to please. Great gas mileage, and number one: ZERO REPAIR BILLS!

Worst Features

Front brake dust is excessive (ALWAYS dirty), stereo is nothing to brag about, stereo controls on steering wheel would be nice. How about more than 3 wiper speeds? Not impressed with paint quality - anyone else think paint quality stinks or is this peculiar to my car??
