1998 Volvo V70 4dr Wagon


The V70 definatly feels more sturdy
than our Camry, solid like you would
imagine a tank feels. Crisp
handling/steering can be fatiguing on
long trips because the slightest move
of the wheel sends you off course.
Braking is excellent with 4 wheel
disc/anti-lock during the yellow light
power stops I've never had anyone stop
as quikly as me. Acceleration? I'm not
so impressed but it's better than the
Camry. The seats are very comortable
(but see improvement area for related
comments). The leather quality seems
better than average.

Best Features

Steering - crisp and responsive with firm ride. Braking, never had a car stop like this one. Dual climate control, nice. Sideview mirror defrost, cool. Seats, are comfortable. Paint, appears to have more coats or be applied thicker. Not like Japenese cars. Stereo, excellent sound.

Worst Features

No CD player, what the hell? Passenger seat, to lay it down there is a circular dial you must crank down. Cruise control first, I like an on/off light. Second, there is no cancel button, I prefer this over the slamin' on the brakes method. Did I mention no CD player?
