"I have own this car since OCT 1998. I am very happy with this cars performance and gass milage per gallon of gas. The past three years I have had items to repair/ replace for the first time different componets. I use a Volvo speciality shop for my mail ordered parts that comes with removal and installation instructions. Also they let you know the level of mechanical skills need to do the repairs. I have replaced all items with the same original or better rated parts. One of the things that I loved about Volvo is that I could do a lot of the repairs myself where as with BMW, I could not. The car still performs like new. Next to replace all of the seals to get the quite ride I had during the first 9 years. The paint has held up also. But I did wake and detail it over the years. The car has been in extreme heat climates and cold. I was military so I moved a lot. I am very satified with my S70T5."

"If you want a luxury vehicle you gotta pay a price. If you buy it used you gotta pay more then the guy before you. Volvos were never known for being cheap to repair, becaue they are not cheap. They are safe and cheapness would take away from the safty. I have owned my 98 S70 T-5 since new and have had my share of repairs, totaling no more then $1500, but it was expeceted. Over 9 years it comes out a bit over $150 a year. If you asked me if they are safe and will stay safe... Its not falling apart and losing its safty. I do not know any 4 door sedan for under $100,000 that is safer then this car. I would reccomend it to anyone, friends or foes."

"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."
