Why did you buy the vehicle?

I bought the car because I was on a tight budget. It was comfortable, well-equiped, and got decent fuel mileage. In 2011 I paid $3,500 for a 98 that had 113k miles on the odometer. I'm running 25 mpg average. I would say I have had low maintenance costs. The car has been in two light to moderate front end collisions. Will be needing major work soon.

What are the good points?

This thing runs like a tiny tank. Auto transmission includes sport, economy and winter modes. Very nice speakers, replacing the stock head unit and adding some bass result in surprisingly good stereo system. Very comfortable leather seats, and quiet cabin with dual zone climate control that is true to the set temperature.

What are the bad points?

No rear cup holders. Can't fit a double din stereo system unless customized. Parts have a premium sticker in the store, you'll have to track down online retailers. Wal-mart (near me) doesn't stock oil filters for the S70 any more, so they can't change the oil either.
