Tried and True - even in a box
By Nancydrew1970 on


1999 Volvo S70 GLT Turbo 4dr Sedan


I grew up in a family where 3 of our 4
family cars were Volvos: 240DL; 760
Turbo and some long wagon. This car
is my first Volvo (not counting the
240 I drove at 16). Originally I
thought I would want the S40 but it
was just entirely too small and I've
always been a "box" bodystyle fan.
The S70 has the right amount of leg
room, head room and hip room. My
ownly concerns: electrial. On my
drive home from the dealership I
encountered a check engine light and
the turn signals stopped working. I
hope this isn't a trend. Glad I
bought the extented warranty to 2006.

Best Features

The overal safety feeling I have while driving this luxurious car. The turbo allows me to get up and go whenI need it! Plus, I have to admit, I love the classic lines - I'm not a fan of the new body styling.

Worst Features

1st: There are two blind spots I wish weren't there. 2nd: Closing the sunroof 100% has been a pain. I can't seem to get it flush without trying a few times.
