1999 Volvo S70 Reviews

Great running car at 256550 miles I still get 28mpg I've got my moneys worth. timing belt went last week with no warning so depending on repairs we will see if I will keep it. air conditioner needs to be replaced

Bought the 1999 Volvo S70 with 22k miles in 2006. Running great but needed new timing belt because of age. No problem. Love this car however it seems AC may be failing.

We have spend thousands of dollars on the 1999 volvo s70 turbo oxegyn sensors. We would like to disconnect them and on t dealwith them again. Is this possible? Each time it costs us $400.00 for the front and $400.00 for thw back. Any ideas what to do?
