1999 Volvo S70 4dr Sedan


I am very happy with my S70. I used to drive an Acura Integra and am very impressed with the fuel economy in my Volvo S70. The S70 is much larger than the Integra, feels much safer and gets the same fuel economy (both 30mpg). These cars cost over $30,000 new and are bargains now. Front and side air bags, Heats seats, head light wipers, cd and tape player, quality leather, dual zone climate, and other luxuries are what made me pick this over a used Honda Accord. Volvos also have legendary reliability and I am hoping this one will continue to be problem free. I have had problems with my Acura (aka Honda). I am having a much better experience with Volvo.

Best Features

Heated seats, factory 6 inch speakers, safe and fuel efficient (usually don't go together), comfortable, European feel. A very expensive car when new that is now affordable to most.

Worst Features

Bring back the boxy look. I guess my S70's curves will have to grow on me.
