1999 Volvo S70 T5 Turbo 4dr Sedan


This vehicle is a pure pleasure to
drive. The seats are very comfortable
on long drives & trips. The turbo
hesitates before kicking-in, but the
power will surprise you for a five
cylinder engine. Had only one major
headache, difficulty starting that took
over four visits and multi-days at the
dealer before the problem was diagnosed
and repaired. If you can avoid the
dealership service, please do. Regular
service averages about $300 and major
service about $800. This doesn't
include the big one at 60000 miles
(timing belt).

Best Features

Great power for a five cylinder. Decent gas mileage. Comfortable seating. Traction control is great on icy roads. Front wheel drive climbs great on hills, but tough on tires. Air condition is very efficent for both front and rear passengers with dual climate control.

Worst Features

Move the Traction control button, possibly to the dashboard.
