Trans failure
By Burnt on


1999 Volvo S70 4dr Sedan


Love older rear drive volvos but not
new front drive. Volvo is cheaper to
buy than BMW and Mercedes (who they
claim to be in same company) but the
lower price comes with cost----early
failure of major parts.

Auto trans failed at 79,000 miles. If
that is not enought, other cons
include: Poor dealer performance and
high cost for parts. Harsh ride over
poor pavement and bumps, weak brakes.

Best Features

Large seats and good for rear seat passengers. Quality interior parts and body paint. Side air-bags.

Worst Features

Go back to rear wheel drive and work on reliability.
