1998 Volvo V70 XC 4dr Wagon AWD


I really like this car. It is solid and
practical. Great cargo room, long and
lower than SUVs. With my Thule roof
rack I can carry kayaks, bicycles, or
lumber on top without help getting it
on the load bars.
However, since 100K miles I'm
putting quite a bit of money into
repairs. Maybe that's normal, but my
wife's 1994 Accura Legend with
164K miles has needed fewer
repairs (per her). Wonderful winter
car too.

Best Features

The AWD, the driver's information computer, the exterior height (lower than SUVs), and the cargo capacity. Oh, the car looks great and is solid and tight still!

Worst Features

Fix the headlight problem of burning out bulbs. Cruise controls on this year are old fashioned, but have been updated on newer years. Water runs onto the front seats off the roof when wet! My repair man tells me the AC units are known to spring leaks behind the dashboard.
