1998 Volvo V70 XC 4dr Wagon AWD


We never thought we would shell out $35,000 for a Volvo AWD. But having owned the car now for 7 years, I can honestly say it is the best car we have ever had. It has a feel of extreme quality and runs "like new" to this day. Yes, repairs can be pricy on a $35k car - do people expect differently? The turbo provides plenty of pep, the leather seats are to die for, mileage is fine (19-24). We have had next to zero "fit and finish" problems, unlike our other vehicles which have come and gone. No major accidents, but you know with Volvo you are as safe as you are going to get. If and when this car finally dies (and with only 98000 miles it has a long way to go) I will surely buy another!

Best Features

Leather heated adjustable seats, dash layout, superb stereo, bullet-proof 5 cylinder engine, fit and finish, all around top quality.

Worst Features

Volvo's tend to go through brakes a little faster than most, probably due to heaviness of vehicle. Cheap cup holders. Needs adjustable intermittent wipers.
