1998 Volvo V70 Turbo 4dr Wagon AWD


I recently added a new ECU unit to the
car with a sportier exhaust system from
IPD so now the car flies for a Volvo.
Instead of the stock 190 hp, I'm
running with around 230. The car
hasn't been the most reliable with the
little things such as bulbs, and
squeeks here and there, but the overall
quality is fabulous. Just find a good
mechanic that you trust and keep the
car serviced and it will run well in
all conditions. The all-wheel drive
system is very good in the snow,
especially when starting in 2nd gear
(winter mode). The only AWD system
that I feel is better is from Audi.

Best Features

The turbocharger makes driving this safety box a lot of fun.

Worst Features

Should have offered the AWD option with a manual transmission in North America.
