Gas saver? Not really...

Not saving a whole lot on gas. Getting only about 22.5 per gallon. Expecting around 28-29 per gal as advertised. even if you do your own maintainence, Chou can't reset the computer that reads, maintanence overdue, which is a little bothersome. Not a whole lot of room, passengers must navigate out of the backseat like they are going through some sort of obstacle course having to get passed the narrow opening which the seatbelt is in the way so it's easy to get tangled up. Other wise, great power, easy to maneuver and park. Engine noise is loud and you can feel every little bump. The car sits so low that it makes the ordinary driveway seem like a steep mountain that if not handled correctly, the front end scrapes.

Volvo C30- lots of value, lots of fun!

For the same or less money, you can buy a faster, better handling car, or a car with more interior space and luxury. The C30 is in many respects a compromise. Interestingly, the C30's inspiration- Volvo's 1800ES of the '70's, received the same critique. Today, the ES is an iconic, sought after, albeit idiosyncratic, classic. However, since buying a 40 year old car wasn't an option for me, I went for a three year old C30. I find 0-60 in 6.6 secs is plenty fast enough for me! I can sling the car thru tight curves with confidence. The ride is perhaps a bit firmer than I would choose, but then again, I'm a pretty old guy, and compared to the '65 MGB of my youth, it's downright cushy! Gas mileage is decent, but not extraordinary; I'm getting 23-24 mpg around my small city, but I'm not asking for the turbocharger too often either. My car has the R-design option which offers leather, a firmer suspension, and some unique ground effects and trim. With only about 4000 sold annually over the past 5 years (in the US), you will stand out from the crowd. The car's fit and finish says quality and substance. While I wouldn't want to squeeze into the back, my wife and I are quite comfortable in the well-made and very adjustable front seats. The automatic climate control, sound system, and bluetooth phone link are all excellent. The pop-up navigation works well, but is already a bit dated. Volvo safety features abound, which was a big reason I chose the C30. My work in intensive care has made me a little paranoid about small cars, but I feel very safe in this one. The C30 is a unique, well-made sporty car for someone that wants something fun and a little different.

Awesome fun car

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.
