I love driving my wagon
By Pastsportscardriver on


1998 Volvo V70 4dr Wagon


I usually buy new car every 4-5 years,
but I can't this time. I love my Volvo,
and it is a wagon! The seats are
comfortable to sit in (mine are
leather, the car responds to my every
command. All the controls are in the
right place. The seat belt adjusts to
fit my female 5'4" body (most don't).
The cargo space is unbelievable large.
I bought a new 35" TV, TV stand and VCR
and all fit comfortably, still in their
boxes in the cargo area without
removing my child seat. The back seat
folds down to offer even more room.
This car is a keeper.

Best Features

Fold down rear seats. Dual Climate Control. Leather Wrap Steering Wheel Cover

Worst Features

Two problems: 1. Headlight bulbs need to be replaced frequently. 2. The seat belt retractor has also had to be replaced twice. This particularly bothersome because the seat belt gets stuck, the metal engagement plate catches on the seat and stabs me in the arm. Nasty bruises!
