1999 Volvo S70 GLT Turbo 4dr Sedan


Always told Volvo's were reliable cars. This one has had problems since day one. I have gone through 2 sets of O2 sensors and its ready for a 3rd, used both Volvo and OEM before. 02 sensor harnesses. Replaced throttle body. Oil breather box, emissions system, and PCV needs replaced. Replaced ball joints and tie rod ends. Steering still makes noise. Power steering fluid leak. Cam seal oil leak. 2 heater cores replaced. Ate 2 sets of breaks and rotors in 50K. Turbo needs rebuilt. Fuses and bulbs go out all time. Electric seat motors are going out.
Cup holders are poorly designed.

Best Features

On the rare occasions it ran properly it was like driving a sportier car.

Worst Features

1.Take design 2.Throw in trash 3.Start over
