Default S70 Reliable?

My appologies for the informal hastness of this, but I'm about to look at several S70's Friday afternoon, and I've known the volvo name to be reliable, but I read a few places about terrible reliability on the S70's

So, whats the low-down on the S70's? A repair bill on wheels?

What years are you looking at?

I would get a 1998 if you can.

No they didn't. It was a S70 T-5. The R didn't come back till 1999 or 2000 in only the V70R AWD.
