"We drive this thing hard, we are not the greatest at regular maintenance. The car is 14 years old with almost 285,000 miles! Original transmission, original engine, only basics replaced. It rattles inside on bumpy roads, the paint on the hood is wearing out but it is not garaged. It has been very reliable and strong."

"I love the S70. The styling is very appealing to look at, the gas-mileage is pretty good(for a sporty sedan), and the turbo engine pulls very well-even beyond triple-digit speeds. Leather, an 8-speaker sound system from the factory(with an amp no less!), heated seats, power-sunroof and Volvo's stellar safety record. This can also be a family hauler, with plenty of room for 5. Other than a Bimmer, which costs a lot more, there are few cars that have the package of goods like the S70 does."

"Put studded tires on in winter and I was queen of the road (terrific in snow and on icy roads) Had this car for 10 years (bought it used) and always felt safe transporting the kids. Cannot keep the A/C working and driver's window mechanism needs replacing. One of the best cars I have ever owned. Wish I could afford to buy and own another one."

"If every car made were of the quality and appeal to a car lover as this Volvo, we would be all much happier drivers and owners of the motor vehicles. In 16 years the car has NEVER given me a problem, but has been a reliable and comfortable transportation. I don't quite know what happened to Volvo after the S70 model, as I know many S70 owners who are very pleased with their cars."
