1999 Volvo V70 GLT Turbo 4dr Wagon


My dad has had Volvos since I was a kid, both his 740 and 850 have 200k+ miles and only some odd repairs... not my 1999 V70. In one year we replaced left door latch, light dimmer timer, alternator, oxygen sensor, cleaned some part that got oily gunk in it, and the cam position sensor. It has taken 9 months to finally get the check engine light off. Fortunately for me my father-in-law owns a local mechanic shop and charges me parts only (still have put in $1200). My advice - if considering buying this car, drive it for 30 mins, stop for 30 mins, and drive again for 30 mins to see if anything shows up. This car is not very reliable and I'm really disappointed in Volvo.

Best Features

My father-in-law charges only for the parts. :)

Worst Features

Basically everything electronic and mechanical.
