Love It. — This car defiantly has a learning curve for repairs. Handling is superb. Quality is outstanding. Reliability and economy wise is amazing. Safety is outstanding and has lowered my insurance by 50%. I couldn't have asked for a better overall car.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: I never thought about foreign luxury cars untill i bought this Volvo. I honestly was missing out.

Cons: Finding a mechanic can be hard.

Strong But Slow — 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 around.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Its a Tank

Cons: Slowmobile

Awesome Sleeper, Luxurious And Fast. — Couldn't beat it with a stick! I LOVE this car. She eats other, more performance oriented cars with ease. The comfort of the ride is amazing as well! We have owned it for 2 years and loved every moment of it!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: The car is fast, a sleeper and sexy!

Cons: It can be expensive for replacement parts. A $900 O2 sensor nearly put me into shock!

Okay Car Great For A First Car And Can Last A While — I has many problems w/ the transmission but the engine runs solid. It has pretty good power and okay gas mileage. It has a spider crack on the windshield so you need to go slower on the highway or the crack could get worse.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: good power and fun run if you get the right model

Cons: good car just some problems

My Volvo — It is not a manual, so its slow off the line. Left strut needs adjusting. The dash rattles at around 1500rpm. It will be better once i get some money to tune it up.

Pros: The turbo is nice, like the AWD. It looks unassuming.

Cons: Automatic transmission

The 1999 Volvo S70 2.4 FWDR not only sets the bar high but maintains it’s reputation in stability and safety. The particular model I drive is the 2.4 99 S70 FWD leather seats/ heated seats, dual climate control, cruise control, shift lock overdrive. For only having 163-HP this first excecucutive like family
