This 1998 Volvo S70 is a beautiful machine. It still looks great as we have kept it in fine condition. People cannot believe it is 18 years old. The paint is still white and clean looking. The engine runs well as my husband has continually done the proper maintenance. The car takes off easily and quickly, going up the Harbor Bridge without any problem. The build quality has been sound and sturdy. The safety measures that Volvo took when they made this car was the best. I feel comfortable and very safe in this handsome car.
Story
I tutor now since I have retired. A sister of one of my students is in high school. When I let her drive it with me and her mom one day. She was so delighted and loved how it drove. When we got home, she told her older brother that "Mrs. Linda's car is really fun to drive! It took corners so well." She and her brothers (of various ages) think I drive the "coolest car!" A great recommend... (more)
Pros
This 1998 Volvo S70 has been a most reliable vehicle. It starts up easily and runs so smoothly, hugging the road from day one. After 18 years, it still feels tight and spry. I have driven this car for work and always felt I would be safe in it as the safety features are top notch. There are front airbags as well as side airbags, even in a car 18 years old. Volvo was ahead of just about all car manufacturers as far as safety goes. The strength of the body is also a plus for being in freeway traffic. I just feel so safe in it. I still have the original air conditioner/compressor with... (more)
Cons
The negativity for this car seems to be around the age of the car: the seats have lost their padding with age as it has deteriorated so the metal bars under the upholstery can be felt. But that is really not a true negative point as the car has been used and has many miles. The many sensors that cars must have today seems to go out often, making it time for changes a lot. The sensors are good for keeping the engine running well, but they seem to dysfunction and then cost so much for "just" a sensor.

1998 Volvo S70 - Enjoyable driving experience.

I really enjoy this car. It accelerates very quickly, and it's just a real joy to drive. There are lots of features on this model, too. Sunroof works seamlessly, as its auto-mechanically operated, and the other power options all work as one would expect them to. The body aesthetics are well conceived, and the rear spoiler option is a subtle, yet very welcome addition to this model type. Drivetrain feels strong and durable, and the ride quality is very sufficient for a car in this category. I also like that this particular model allows the user to change the shifting experience per the need at the time. Later models within this S70 model do not allow anything except for W or "winter mode" to be configured by the user. I like having the option to control that myself. It has slightly abov... (more)
Story
On the way home from buying the car, a car pulled out in front of me in such a way as to severely impede my highway driving speed. As I looked to the side before moving in the other lane, a car was coming up a fair distance away, so I made the lane switch thinking a little more punch to the accelerator would be needed. Let's just say it was a bit too much. Although controlled and a great exper... (more)
Pros
Acceleration, handling, user controlled shift style, turbo, good gas mileage, bulletproof drivetrain, Airbags all around the car, great driving experience.
Cons
Repair costs are a little higher than domestically bought cars, some options seem unnecessary (wipers on the headlights). ABS / check engine lights known to show many false positives.

This was the best car I have ever owned. I bought it when I lived in the deep south, and the paint color stayed true for the entire 15 years I owned it. It handled beautifully, and the seats fit me very well. (I'm 6'2"). It was very easy to drive, and even though it was an automatic you could downshift if you had to. This is a fabulous family car - or for a couple who has outdoor interests! We used to go to the beach a lot and it fit all of our gear. We also did several vacations down to Key West and my husband and I, as well as two kids and four bikes all traveled in comfort and style.
Story
I remember when I took my daughter off roading in this car! She thought it was a hoot! It has good ground clearance, so I didn't have to worry about hitting anything.
Pros
The turning radius was exceptional. Even for as long as it was - it was a station wagon - you could turn it on a dime. It was a quiet ride - not a lot of road noise came through. Gas mileage was fabulous. Even after 15 years it was still getting 30 mpg highway. Everything was smooth in this car. I think the drivers side window gear went out at 9 years, but it was easy to replace. Everything under the hood was right where you could get to it.
Cons
Volvos are expensive when you have to take them to the shop. But then again, you get what you pay for. The most expensive trip to the dealer was $1800 but that was only one time. The way the engine was placed in the car my husband could do most of the maintenance himself.
