1999 Volvo V70 GLT Turbo 4dr Wagon


My 2nd Volvo Wagon. Surprised to find
it listed as a luxury car. The tan on
my leather wrapped steering wheel
comes off on my hand. I drive with my
right hand on the passenger seat to
keep it from rattling and the car has
a rough idle(dealer says idle
is "normal"). The V70 has
distinguished itself by racking up
over $1,500 in non-routine-
maintainance costs in the seven months
since the warranty expired. Other
components had failed under the
warranty period. Now that Subaru has
turbocharged the Forester and is
offering a leather package, guess what
my next wagon will be? Originally
bought a Volvo because of the
reputation for safety AND durability.

Best Features

Comfortable seats, size of car.

Worst Features

Quality design, quality parts, and quality control have become "minimum" requirements for survival in the consumer marketplace. Suggest Volvo tries to achieve the minimum.
