1998 Volvo S70 4dr Sedan


Bought new in 1998 Maintained every 5000 miles (about 3 months) oil change at dealership. I was happy up to 60,000 miles (still brakes were a known Volvo problem with soft pads). But after went thru 3 batteries, heating problem, ABS module replaced, front end replaced, tires 15 inches going very quick, twice rotors both front and back, and never mind miriad of electrical problems (bulbs, etc). Service at dealership is extremly expensive. This is my last VOLVO. Two of my students are using it right now still the safest car around, but daddy will be paying all the future repair bills which I'm not looking forward. Bought myself a 2005 Toyota Camry XLE V-6 and extended warranty just in case.
