    Safe And Stylish — Great car but need something bigger. Heated leather seats, airbags, sunroof -- all in all, a nice car that needs a little work. Still drive it to work every day but would do a little work if keeping it for the next year.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Safe and stylish

    Cons: Needs tires, cv axle and mass air flow sensor

    Best Damn Brand Of Car Ever. — its a sleeper for sure. excelent quality car especially for how i try and beat it into the ground. it will take you just about anywhere including ice and sand banks on the lake. kinda heavy but definately safe and reliable.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: fast, safe, functional, comfort

    Cons: expensive parts

    Nice Car To Own — heavy duty tank, safe, dependable, classic car. Built to last, never rusts. Can put on milage without decreasing the car's value. Need snow tires for all 4 wheels. But when you have them on...the car drives very well/ Bummer to invest in tires but worth it.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: safety

    Cons: check engine light

    Its Certianly A Great Car — Performance: I have the stock non-turbo 2.4L 5cyl engine, Up until last week it has been running fine, But now it seems like it wants to stall on me, I do not know what is wrong with it. Build Quality: My brakes squeal when I reverse, and other then the engine wanting to stall it runs fine. Appearance: I love the tan leather seats, they are amazing and very comfortable. The only flaws on my car are on the bottom part of the front bumber (my wife is from Florida and we both now live in Pennsylvania, shes not used to high curbs so she tends to hit them quite often) Also one day my wife decided to somehow manage to hit a mailbox and so now on the front passenger side fender has a nice dent in it. Cost of Ownership: It gets great gas mileage and I drive like an a$$h0le lol. But the downside is parts arent very cheap for it... Fun Factor: Incredible stock sound system. My S70 defintly has the balls for an automatic! Love it! Just hope I can get it fixed cheap.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Fast. comfortable, sexy. A luxury sedan for a great price.

    Cons: Parts for it are not the most exspensive but they are up there,

    Overall Good First Or Second Car — It is a comfortable ride with only little trouble over bumps. Acceleration is pretty good up until around 80, with supreme braking and very accurate handling. Gas Mileage and Outward appearance leave something to desire for, however interior appearance is way above par for the year and rather cheap now.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Extremely Comfortable Drive

    Cons: Horrible Gas Mileage for the size of the car

    Still Plenty Of Life In It. — Its well build comfy litlle car maybe a bit slugish but on the highway well it rocks. Great handling and with leather seats still in a good shape i love just being in it. Its sill early day but i was told maintaining this car could be a costly affair.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Smoothness of the ride

    If You Can Get A T5 Variant Go For It. — This was my first car. I had the Coral Red exterior and tan leather interior. It was not a fast car by any means. I did get to have some fun against other cars at a few stop lights though. It was a good first car. reliable, smooth ride and just all around comfortable. Even now that i drive a CLK430 I still miss the S70 on occasion

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Its a solid car all around

    Cons: If you want speed, look elsewhere

    Its Not Bad. — Well it lasts long, its slowly falling apart, but it still runs good. 115,000 miles and counting and im hoping for another 150,000. I can change it between sport and economical mode. which means i can go faster and eat my gas or go regular and still get my gas eaten just a bit slower.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: great handling

    Cons: repairs are expensive
