Love the XC so far
By pete_427 on


1998 Volvo V70 XC 4dr Wagon AWD


We bought a used XC a year ago and so
far, despite a couple nagging bulb-
related problems, we really like the
car. The ride and comfort are
excellent, it has plenty of power, it
looks fantastic, and it's great in foul
weather. The "check engine" light just
came on and we are scheduled to have it
looked into. I hope we're not about to
enter "check engine light" hell (as
described by other reviewers).

Overall a really nice car, but I'll
agree not what I'd have expected for
$40k when new (in terms of attention to
build-quality details).

Best Features

Smooth ride, comfortable seats, great stereo, powerful engine, third seat

Worst Features

Attention to details. Bulbs and switches shouldn't be failing so often in a Euro-luxury car. Perhaps Ford will help Volvo get it right.
