1999 Volvo V70 4dr Wagon


The only good thing I can say about this car is that I've never had a breakdown and tow. Nevertheless it's been an unending series of expensive repairs involving the cooling and electrical system, including an ABS rebuild, throttle body failure, oxygen sensor replacement, and the replacement of too many to count switches and bulbs. There is no such thing as a simple oil and filter change; always some aggravating expensive repair. I feel like I'm rebuilding this car as I go along, and I've taken good care of it. Now we're into college years and I can't afford to replace it. Only 94000 miles and the worst car purchase in over 40 years of ownership. Shame on volvo for peddling this junk.

Best Features

Nice looking car with good body integrity.
