Superb comfort, plenty of safety equipment, solid construction and amazing braking ability.
High price, odd control placement.
Volvo makes a number of performance, safety and styling upgrades to the V70 line. All cars benefit from a new engine management system and an improved brake system that includes four-channel ABS and Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD). In terms of safety, V70s now include head-protecting side airbags and dual-stage deployment for the front airbags. Stability and traction control is now standard on the T5, and all other front-drive models are equipped with traction control. On the cosmetic side, all V70s receive a new grille emblem and body-color side moldings, mirrors, door handles and bumpers.

We purchased this V-70 over a year ago. Yup, the tail gate cover was loose, but it was easy to fix. Oxygen sensor went out, a little pricy but another easy fix.
Gets 22.7 city and 28.9 hwy which increased a bit with new plugs. Overall this is a great little car, I hope to run it to 300,000 which is where my last two Fords gave up the ghost.

Nicest of the 12 cars I've owned
My previous car was a 1988 740 GLE. I put 365,000 miles on that, sold it for 700.00, and it is STILL someone's daily driver. The V70 has 186,000 on it, and I've been driving it for 4 years. In that time the only thing I've had to do that wouldn't be considered REGULAR USED CAR UPKEEP is have the throttle body assembly replaced (fully under warranty). I've replaced the plugs, changed the oil regularly, replaced one tie rod, had the brakes done once and fixed one of the fog lights.(NYC driver POTHOLES) I also bought a kit for 13 bucks to secure the inside panel of the tailgate. I love this car, and plan on getting a 2006/2007 model in a couple years, prob my last before having to go electric

An excellent used car buy
I bought my '99 V70 Base Wagon with about 160,000 miles on it, including all the maintenance and repair receipts since it was new. It now has about 214,000 miles. It still has the original muffler and exhaust system, starter, alternator, radiator and clutch. The A/C works great and has never been recharged. Most cars would have had all of those replaced by now. The engine and transmission have been rock solid. (The manual transmissions will last forever - the automatics, not so much.) The engine holds 5 quarts, instead of 4 like most smaller engines. It's never used more than a quart in 5000 miles. Mileage has been between 20 and 25 around town, and about 30 on long trips. The 5-banger has plenty of power - any more, and I'd be getting speeding tickets. I have used the V70 to tow numerous cars on a dolly, including other V70s! The seats are the most comfortable I've ever sat in, and the visibility is terrific. Maintenance, while I have had it: The wiring harness to the back hatch - it flexes when it's opened and closed, and had several broken wires when I bought the car. The brake pads are finally getting down, after 50K or more miles. The driver's seat vinyl is finally starting to crack. Not bad for 19 years old. The oil filter will pour oil on your hand when you take it off, every time. Use a disposable glove. The radiator shroud is made of fiberglass, and it gives me an itchy rash if I ever rest my arm on it. The biggest complaint that I have is the squeaking dash, which is worse when it's cold. There is one mounting point that tends to break after a few years. It's a common characteristic of this model. It can be repaired (if you are a bit daring and handy) by a bolt through the firewall. This is a great used car, especially if you like to fix the little things (like light bulbs and brake pads) every now and then. Those little characteristics just give it character and personality. I've had lots of cars over the last 34 years, and the V70 is certainly one of my favorites. It's very dependable, roomy without being oversized, is almost as useful as a pickup, had decent economy, is fun to drive and is a classic, instead of trying to be trendy. It finds the middle ground between luxury, economy and practicality without giving up anything for safety. I would expect it to last well beyond 300K, unless it gets hit by a semi.

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you
that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make
higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand,
can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a
new car every three years or so.
