Great Car - Until 170,000 miles
By Bill on


1999 Volvo S70 GLT Turbo 4dr Sedan


I purchased this car used in 2000 with about 11,000 miles. It was absolutely perfect until about 170,000 when the Electronic Throttle Module failed. Before buying any used Volvo from this time period I would thoroughly research the ETM and the problems it's caused. It's a very expensive part, and the replacement is just as likely to fail as the original. And since replacing mine, I've had several other problems with it and related parts. I've completely lost confidence in the car. Having said that, it was a great car for 10 years.
