1998 Volvo V70 R Turbo 4dr Wagon AWD


Great car to start with but growing list of
repairs is a dissapointment. Our first and
maybe last volvo. Replaced turbo seals,
front and rear rotars, brake pads every 10k,
tires at 30k CV joint (not sold as an
individual unit, thus costing $1,000) and the
most amazing thing, put the same sized new
tires but different manufacturer that created
instant wear on the transmission almost
resulting in a $3000 repair job. Watch out
for AWD and turbo's. Honestly this sounds
like a design flaw that volvo places on the
consumer and tire companies.

Accelaration, handling, overall performance.
