1998 Volvo V70 4dr Wagon


This is my 3rd Volvo. My experience
is that the V70 is more reliable that
my 1989 245. I always buy a base
model for price and more importantly
to eliminate problems. The AC
compressor and condensor was replaced
the first week. I guessed Volvo
probably put the wrong refrigerant in
it. I used to replace the headlight
bulbs but after recall never replace a
build yet. Replaced air pump and
recently blower fan. A good dealer is
the key. I had serveral brake and
noise problems but convinced dealer to
kept car for a week. They replace
rotors, oil pump and pan.

Best Features

The seats are the best. The controls are easy to understand and use. Gas mileage can be better. 22 mpg higway driving

Worst Features

Volvo needs better quality control. I had many problems but dealer took care of problems. Spent $2000 on repair after warranty expired.
