1999 Volvo S70 4dr Sedan


We bought this car while stationed in England and it has turned out to be one of our best purchases. We picked it up in Gothenburg Sweden in February 1999 and visiting Sweden in February is the only thing I would change (too much cold and snow). We have 185,000 miles now and the car still performs great. I taught 3 sons how to drive in it and it took it all in stride. Fit and finish are still first class-- my friends have wondered at the lack of squeaks and rattles with this many miles. The seats are still the best in the business and the paint and finish is still great. This is one of the best cars I've ever owned and I plan on hanging on to it until it falls apart.

Best Features

Strong engine, good shifting transmission, good handling, decent gas mileage, great seats, and great looking car.

Worst Features

Too many electrical faults--those need to be improved. Volvo service and maintenance is too expensive--go find a good independent mechanic.
