Amost there - 1998 Volvo S70
By Hawaii - November 20 - 10:00 am
I chose this car over a BMW 5 series for the price to value ratio. The 236 HP from the turbo-intercooled motor works well except for a sometimes hair- raising turbo lag. More than once my butt was pinching the T5's comfortable, power and heated leather seat when I had to merge into traffic from a dead stop. There have been some minor disappointments: poor button visibility behind the steering column, driving lights that do absolutely nothing, poor rear visibilty when backing up into a parking stall. But overall it's minor stuff. I feel my T5 was a deal.

Best Car Ever Built...End of Discussion! - 1998 Volvo S70
By jayandally - October 12 - 8:24 am
I bought my Volvo S70 in 2000 with 24,000 miles on it, but sadly had to say goodbye to it this week. While it didn't get me to 300K, it did get me to 286,000. The only work I ever had done was sparks plugs & wires, fuel filter, radiator hoses and alternator. The car was rock solid and reliable. I was so impressed with the car, I bought another S70 - hopefully this one gets me over 200K also.
Smooth ride after the speedbumps - 1999 Volvo S70
By Jake - September 9 - 12:23 pm
I have had this Volvo for 6 years, 75,000 miles, and it has been great. The major problems I have had with the car came around 90k miles when the ETC and ABS had to be replaced. The ETC is a recalled defect and the ABS happened to go with it in my case. The car is easy to maintain and has plenty of room to work in the engine compartment. Lights are easy to change; I don't even scratch my hands doing it. Maintenance procedures are easy to perform on this car which is more than I can say for many other cars. Parts are also sold at reasonable prices and readily available from vendors online. There are also great resources for maintenance, etc. online. I wish I could drive this car forever.
Great Driving in the Sunshine State - 2000 Volvo S70

Love my Volvo S70. Traded in my Honda Accord and never looked back. Solid performer, great mileage, comfort, and not a problem after 40k miles. Service has been great locally.
2000 GLT Keep It-Or You Will Miss It!! - 2000 Volvo S70
By Ivan Lucas - August 13 - 2:50 pm
I "tried" to incorporate a "9" in my ratings of perfect "10s" (to make it more realistic for non-believers). But there was not 1 particular category that I felt I should slight in any way. If anything the performance category it should be an 11, And the comfort a 12! If you own 1 of these cars (especially a Turbo) DO NOT SELL IT to purchase something "More expensive"(like I did). You will find there is NOTHING on the market (regardless how much you will spend) that compares to the comfort and performance this car delivers. The seats feel tailor-made. 0-60 and 1/4 mile times are also in V-8 territory. Dont believe me? -drive one. And as for gas mileage - the turbos RUN ON AIR! I get 28mpg.
Best Car I've Ever Owned - 1998 Volvo S70
By MadeInJapan - July 12 - 7:40 pm
I bought this car after selling a '94 850 turbo wagon that I had a love/hate relationship with. I got rid of it due to expense of taking it to the dealer, but I missed the power, comfort and the "fun factor." So, after owning a small Japanese car until it was paid off I began looking for a Volvo Sedan. I must say that I did a lot of research before purchasing this car. This car, when you do your own repairs is not a drain at all. I had the ECU upgraded and also beefed up the suspension with IPD swaybars. It's amazing!
This is my second Volvo - 1999 Volvo S70
By red car - July 4 - 10:00 am
I've had electrical problems with tail lights going out since I got the car - I had the same issue with my 92 Volvo 240. I have just accepted it as part of the package! The dealership always fixes the lights for free, so it's no big deal. I needed a car that can pull out onto the highway quickly, and the S70 does the job. There is plenty of room for five people. Lots of storage room, too. I like the fold down opening for skis, items! All four tires were worn and needed to be replaced at around 40,000 miles. I expected to get more miles out of the tires.
