1998 Volvo S90 4dr Sedan


I found this one owner Volvo with only 72K on it, absolutely flawless. As expected, the price was a bit high, however it is worth every dime! Having had two prior Volvos, we had certain expectations with this one, and it has surpassed them all. Classic styling, old-world craftsmanship in its attention to detail assembly, excellent performance and handling, easily the nicest, most driveable vehicle we've had in over 30 years, including a Cadillac. I would highly recommend this vehicle to anyone looking for a solid, reliable car that can be driven for many years. The newer Ford / Volvos have nothing over this "last of the big rear wheel drive" true Swedish pieces of art. A real pleasure.

Best Features

The classic design with its clean concise lines. The incredibly plush leather interior. The comfort and support of the highly reputable Volvo seating. The exceptional mileage for a vehicle of this size. Precise handling.

Worst Features

The only recommendation I would offer is the placement of the door lock switch to a place a bit more accessible to the driver, where one doesn't have to reach under and around the steering wheel. Beyond that, I would leave it just as it is, a masterful combination of craftsmanship and performance.
