Disappointed with 98 V70 Wagon
By Volvo Fan on


1998 Volvo V70 4dr Wagon


I have owned both the 90 240 sedan and 85 240 wagon. I still have my 85 wagon and love it even with 200,000 plus... safe, sturdy and dependable, though quite noisy. After having kids it was a natural progression to go to the V70 but after the 100000 mark it has been a big disappointment. Computer problems with unclear diagnosis, interior cosmetic problems like leather pulling away from doors, visor flopping down, interior plastic pulling away from the tailgate, rubber edging falling off the door and more. We treat the car well and gently (never slamming the doors). I have spent $2000 to maintain the car in 2004 (that's without fixing the leather interior/tailgate).Not what Volvo used to be.
