To be fair, I am coming from a Volvo S60R, which was a great car with all the bells and whistles. The C30 is a lot of fun to drive. The throttle and steering is very responsive. The ride is however rather noisy. The tires have already been replaced due to obnoxious tire noise (I guess the previous owner did not have the tires rotated regularly). There is also a lot of noise during suspension travel that sounds a lot like strut bearing noise. The stereo is good and I appreciate the ipod interface and its ease of use. The styling on the R-design is aesthetically pleasing. I like the interior but I am unsure how to clean the synthetic material. The trunk is obviously much smaller than my S60, and I miss having AWD. The model I bought does not have a sunroof and I regret that. Overall I do enjoy the car. For the price it is a fun and stylish vehicle.
Fun to Drive, Compact, Unique
