1998 Volvo V70 4dr Wagon


I bought this car new thinking I would have it for 200,000 miles. Now that I've reached 100,000, I'm ready to give it up. I've had the usual complaints that other people mentioned (lights, constantly needing new brakes, Check Engine Light that never goes off). I also spent over $1500 replacing the steering rack at a little over 60,000 miles. I can't tell you how many times the dealer has lied to us about repairs needed (they wanted to replace the A/C coil when it was only a leak). While safe, I'm happy to be getting whatever little I will get as a trade-in and move on.
