Pros

VOLVO for life

Cons

Still love my "baby" but she's an expensive date!  I've put about the same I paid for her in repairs/maintenence...new master control switch (windows didn't operate/got stuck open); new tires, new rack and pinion, some suspension work...and now I have a small radiator leak and some popping/cracking at braking (up front are old, in rear are new).

S70 Glt Se — 5 cylinder 190 horsepower engine is quick! The interior is awesome - leather heated power seats, dual climate control, sunroof...I plan to put tires and some suspension upgrades on it within a year to improve handling and performance. Safer than my old S40...insurance rates even went down!

Pros

Handling, power, safty, looks, sound, and luxury!

Cons

I hate that parts cost so much, and most of all a lot of things you must take your car to the dealer to have done, some of the work for these cars are tricky so study before you decide to just take your car apart

Great Car I Think You Should Check It Out... — Great car very safe probably the safest car on the road, I really love the handling it handles like a civic or something small. The car has a lot of trunk space and a ton of options. This car is loaded, looks good and feels good. This car is built very solid and it has some weight but it drives like its a sports car. The only down side is the parts cost some money and this car was only built for 3 years so its hard to find some parts unless brand new (which is very expensive). The brakes are one of the things i like best. Comes with 8 speakers and they sound great. The traction controle is very good car is very stable seats are nice has heated seats and mirrors. I deff like this car better than the S80's I just think they are built way better and a heck of a lot easier to work on. This car is not nearly as bad to work on as other model volvo's I love this car!!

Pros

Sunroof/moonroof is great

Cons

minor things are starting to go bad/break.

Volvo S70 — This was a 4 year lease turn-in so the mileage was 21k. I like the fit of the seats for my 6'1" build. The back seat split for trunk access is useful. Sunroof/moonroof is great. The computer info (miles driven, mpg, avg mpg, temp) is nice. After 8 years, the AC hose cracked which costs $400 due to dashboard removal to access. Gas mileage is running 22mpg city and 27mpg all highway.

Comfortable, Quiet, Quick - Excellent Value. — Bought it this year and love the car. The five-cylinder sounds great when you wind it out. Comfortable? Amazingly so. Love the car. Tip: Get the best spark plugs you can. truly makes a difference and run it on premium, or at least mid-grade. June 24, 2014: Daughter has the car and it still runs extremely well. Sure, it has a few little problems like any 14-year old car (mostly aging plastic), but it's dependable, comfortable, reliable and has great pickup. A few rattles, but nothing serious. Mileage is still 26-28 highway and around 18-21 in town. Almost 160K miles and don't plan on getting rid of it anytime soon. Wife has 2000 V70 and it's in excellent shape at 120K miles. Do the little stuff and they'll run forever. Oh, and ALWAYS use Volvo brake pads. Anything else squeaks a lot.

Glued To The Road... — Fully equiped except for the sunroof. I bought an EuroSport 3 inches exhaust system and the sound is totally amazing!!!! The original wood upholstery is also fabulous.

Great Car By Jarrett

Good reliable car, long lasting,mine has 227,000 miles. It has pretty good acceleration for a car of its size. Cost of ownership is expensive because it takes premium gas. Its ok to drive, nothing... Read More

Strong But Slow By Alexander

Acceleration is delayed. Built like a dam tank. A little boxy from the outside but i like it. Takes up a bit of gas but is overall good for the money spent on it. Not really a thrill but it gets me ... Read More

I Think You Need A Flat Cap And Driving Gloves, Because You Just Became Old! By Tylander

A car suits your mood. There is nothing exciting about Volvos, and hasn't been since the late 1960's. That said, it is a good daily driver, to work where you don't want to go and to the Wal-Mart, wher... Read More
