2012 Volvo C30J. G. - Charlottesville, VA09/23/2016
Before we had made the first payment on this vehicle, a crack developed in
the coolant expansion tank resulting in catastrophic engine overheating and failure. The engine was toast. We were presented with a $16,000 repair bill.
We were told that even if we had purchased the Carmax extended warranty, the problem we experienced would not have been covered. Lovely.
Forturnately, after a month of deliberations, Carmax bought the car back from us , and in doing so, made us whole. What a relief. Go Carmax. They will undoubtedly sell the car off for parts, and write the rest of it off on their insurance.
Awesome fun car
2013 Volvo C30Maynard Johnson - weymouth, MA07/09/2016
Traded in a Mini Cooper which I loved to drive. This car blows away the Cooper. The C30 was designed to compete against it and they did. It is the quietest smoothest driving car I have ever owned. Great fuel mileage fantastic acceleration and just over all fun.
Roadster with practical side
2008 Volvo C30Anton B - Seattle, WA04/29/2015
I bought C30 four and half years ago used with 20K. The handsome external design expresses my style well. It is practical (overall small size, with easy back seat conversion to increased cargo volume), well balance (power and mileage), and simple inside. I used it to transport tools and materials for home improvement, to take my dog to the park, to go skiing (roof ski rack), and to go on hikes from trail heads far into the Washington state Cascade mountain roads. This car does all of this at good mileage, reliable services, and sporty feel. At 85K, so far I had no unscheduled repairs. If you want luxury handling and interior noise level, with plenty of power for passing and roadstering, at small fuel mileage penalty, get it!
Nothing compares to the feeling of the wind whipping your hair back as you cruise in a well-built convertible. Well, almost nothing—the feeling of getting a great deal on your vehicle purchase is definitely a close second. You can enjoy both of these awesome sensations at the same time by selecting a high-quality convertible that sells for less than $20,000.
Luxury cars come in all shapes and sizes, but they are all expected to look good and perform well. One advantage of buying a used luxury car is that you get the luxury look-and-feel that you want at a more affordable price.
Henry Ford once famously told customers that his Model T came in any color they wanted, so long as that color was black. That was over 100 years ago. Today, the vehicles available to us come in a variety of colors, shapes, and sizes, with a profusion of available options and features. Whether you're shopping for a quality used vehicle, or you want to take the plunge with a new car, 2017 is a great time to see what's available.
