And the "leather" on my door panels seems designed to fail eventually.
And I haven't figured out how to remove a switch from the dashboard without breaking it, but that's probably just because I don't know how to yet. But they're so so fragile. Flimsy. And those are just a couple of examples.
The only other Volvo I have experience with is the 240, which seems designed to last forever compared to the S70.
Granted I'm talking about really superficial things, and (knock on keyboard) I haven't had any mechanical issue at all, and of course that's what really counts. And I still super love my S70, especially once it's on the freeway.
But I'm wondering what people's thoughts are on the longevity of the vehicle? Do you think it's built to last?
And to be clear, I'm not saying it isn't built to last, I'm just curious to hear what other people think about this, largely to ease my fears.
Incidentally on the subject of the 240, if you haven't seen this review, it gets my vote for best bit of automotive journalism of all time (although I wish it were possible for me to edit out that ending, ha):
