"My husband and I bought our '98 S70 GLT as the second owners and fell in love immediately. It was our first car together and could not have been happier! It was so comfortable, quiet, and SAFE. If you are good to the car, it will be good to you. It also helped that my husband can work on just about any vehicle so we saved a lot of money but we gave it whatever it asked of us and it's been reliable. We have since purchased a new Mercedes E 320 wagon for the family and can honestly say that, for us, nothing beats the Volv! It's well over 100,000 miles now and still going. I wish I knew it would last forever."

Pros: "great comfortable ride"

Cons: "flimsy cup holders, car overheated in summer"

"Bought this car used. Found out later S70 model has reputation for mechanical problems. Initially a problem car. Replaced motor and ignition. Still overheated in summer and no one could figure out why but God, I loved this car! Great ride, comfortable, power everything, heated seats, ALWAYS started. I was looking for safe, reliable, comfortable car with a good ride. It was all of that. I had trouble at first but from what I understand from others, this is unusual. I would definitely buy another Volvo but I'll have it checked out first."
