2000 Volvo S70 Overview

It's only a coincidence that the the Volvo S70 was discontinued after the first model year following Ford's acquisition of the Swedish automaker. Initial fears that Ford ownership would result in a quality decline were unfounded; in fact the reputed Volvo quality seemed in many ways to permeate into the Fords instead.

The 2000 S70 earned 5 stars in the NHTSA's frontal crash test for both the driver side and the passenger and 4 stars for the side-impact, thanks to the standard-equipment airbags.

Of course, the side-impact protection is a hallmark of the Volvo name, and this year's cars also boast improvements in the seat belt pretensioners, making the riders' safety net even more responsive. Another wonderful new feature is the WHIPS (whiplash protection) system, which moves the headrests and seatbacks slightly backward when the vehicle is hit from behind. Now that's a bit of Swedish genius. And when you also figure in the standard ABS and traction control, it all adds up to a vehicle you can trust to shield you from harm.

J.D. Power lavished 5 stars onto the 2000 Volvo S70 for its body and interior quality and 4 stars for its performance, mechanical quality, and creature comforts. User opinions widely praise its safety features and workmanship as well as its reliability, handling, responsiveness, and comfort, although a few kvetched that the backseat could be roomier. Others had a thing or two to say about the cost of maintenance, but hey, you can go back to that Escort you drove in college if the occasional repair bill bugs you.

In addition to the aforementioned safety features, the S70 includes as standard equipment air conditioning and power doors and locks; it is considered a luxury car, after all. And in this crazy world of today, feeling safe on the road is a luxury indeed.
