1998 Volvo S70 T5 2.3 turbo from North America
A fast car, that is fun to drive
In the past three years, that I have owned this car, I did not have any problems.
This is very unique and lovely car. It has a lot of power. It can accelerate very fast.
The car is very comfortable, especially at the back. Every inch of the seat is fitted to your body, so during long trips, you do not feel tired.
The trunk is very big. You can fit in it almost anything you want.
The S70 T5 might be a little bit "boxy". However, whenever you see this car on a street you know it's Volvo, as you can recognize a Mercedes-Benz. The exterior of the car is well designed, as is the interior. You feel like you're in a real limousine.
I would definitely buy another Volvo. They are very reliable, comfortable and fast. There are only a few car that are faster than my T5, but with an upgrade up to 300 horsepower, those other cars will stay in the dust.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Yes, I too would be very interested in this 300hp upgrade. If you read this posting and do know how to get 300hp out of the 2.3 HPT please e-mail me at Rich@psu.edu.
