Nice, but expensive maintenance and repairs. by An MSN Autos Consumer on 07/14/2011. Trim: 1999 Volvo S70 GLT, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Nice smooth ride, Comfortable for a long drive, engine runs good at 159,000 miles.
Cons: There are a lot of problems that arise. Within one year of having the car the window master switch went out, ABS module went out, brake caliper froze up, and electronic throttle body is on the brink of going. I am a little leary of getting it fixed because the dealer tells me it will be almost $1,500. The check engine light has never been off, and fault codes are for a transmission solenoid. I haven't even bothered with that. Coolant light came on and reservoir is full and engine doesn't overheat. I don't know why that's on either. Dash rattles which makes an annoying noise.
Overall review: Very costly repairs when things go bad. It seems like having such a robotic electronic car is kind of a pain. I wish more things were mechanical. It does drive nice though. I really like that. I just wish it didn't have so many problems come up.
