    After reading some posts however, I'm a little worried that the 98 V70Rs aren't very reliable. I'm looking at one that's got 85, miles on it, but I'm not looking forward to spending money like water on repairing it every other month. Can 98 V70R owners chime in about the reliability? I was originally going to make the deal this week, but may wait to hear from you folks first.

    I've had parts fail left and right, but parts were typically cheap. Bottom line, I like to own vehicles which appeal to my heart. The ones that make you smile every time you go to the garage. At the same time however, I also don't want to end up replacing every piece of my V70R and end up paying twice the original price.

Also, what kind of driving do you do on the V70R? I assume the more you drive it hard, the more you'll wear out parts.

    If you got any more, I would love to hear from ya! I purchased my '98 in September of '03 with 62, or so. It is now at ,, and it hasn't left me stranded as of yet knocking wood here. I've replaced a wheel bearing, the driveshaft, ABS module, the front struts, two motor mounts, the belts, and some vacuum lines.

    My back door locks have been broken awhile; we have the parts but haven't done it yet. I've also been through two sets of tires. It's a few repairs, but I've done a LOT of driving. My husband does most of the work, and we've bought a lot of parts either used or discounted online. If you use the little spare tire, it will cost you a new awd system. It is not as fast as a T5, but don't worry. It goes in all weather, without a slip.

    I bought a '98 last October with Thus far, I have had to replace the air pump very common around K, and a real do it yourselfer. The dealer put new, no name tires on it at purchase, that are holding up alright thus far. On an 8-hour roundtrip highway venture she maintained 26 mpg.
