1998 Volvo V70 T5 Turbo 4dr Wagon
Purchased at repo auction and obtained service recs from selling dealer. In time owned, did upgrade to ceramic brake pads and top of the line rotors at minimum cost as a DIY job (I'm a woman!). ABS module out per usual paid $150 to get it fixed - now perfect. Oil changes using Mobil 1 and mann filters. That's it. Now finally a tune up for less than $100 in parts again DIY. This car rocks. Mine is loaded and other than very routine maintenance, knock on wood, it's been good. This year must recharge the Freon.
Seats, handling, solid build, quality of leather topnotch, ride quality harsh but sporty as expected.
ABS module to eliminate these gripes. Easier to get into engine compartment. other than that nothing. Love the car.
1998 Volvo V70 4dr Wagon
I recently got in quite a nasty accident with my '98 v70 wagon; and boy was I lucky to be in this car than any other... The guys that hit me were both taken to the hospital, and I did not even have a scratch on me.. The Volvo was total loss unfortunately. So safety is definitely my favorite thing about Volvo. Other nice features are sturdiness on the highway, and reliability.
Improve gas mileage, cheaper repairs, and most of all: The 2.5L engine has barely enough power to propel this heavy car past any other traffic when overtaking...
1998 Volvo V70 R Turbo 4dr Wagon AWD
I have owned a lot of Volvos, this is by far the best one yet. My car has 184k miles on it and it still going strong. it has only had a few small problems, (MAF, small oil leak and o2 sensor) other then that the car has been great. I drive all the time and this in car is the most comfortable I have ever had. The AWD is great in the Snowbelt where I live. just make sure you keep ALL 4 TIRE's with 2\32 of each other. If you don't you will have to replace the entire AWD system. and when you replace tires you must replace ALL FOUR at once.
AWD, Turbo, Great sound system!!! Heated seats, "Saffron" color, ride and handling, sleeper car.
tougher AWD system and cup holders
1998 Volvo V70 4dr Wagon
we have carefully serviced this car from the start. while it is reliable (starts every time) its fit and finish from the very first day showed a lack of workmanship and good design. It is very costly to replace ordinary parts such as oxygen sensors, mufflers and pipes and to repair interior problems like interior lights, shoddy plastic interior molding, etc. I will not buy another Volvo.
sturdy and spacious and sense of safety. Finally a Volvo with front wheel drive.
Where do I start: fix the interior molding - it loosened within a few months of ownership. Wiring harness had to be replaced after I paid for several headlights. CD player has never worked, even after replacement from dealer.
1998 Volvo V70 GLT Turbo 4dr Wagon
Great car inside and out. Very reilable vehicle with only standard maintenance items(e.g. brakes, tires). Excellent power plant and fun to drive - my wife loves it; she takes it on weekends and I get the minivan! Comfort, fuel economy, reliability, classic styling make this my favorite car so far . . . . though I still miss my 1986 760 Turbo wagon. One great car after another, and the walnut trim inside against the tan leather completes the look, comfort and feel of this great wagon. If I had to do it again, I'd have bought this one sooner.
Leather, heated, comfy seats with memory feature for two. GLTurbo!! Great sound-system. Walnut trim. Traction control. Fold down seats. Power plant - goes like Jack the Bear and cruises beautifully.
One or two more inches back on the drivers seat for tall folks. That's it!
