I flew from Boston to Chicago to drive this car back, and I've have been enjoying it for more than a month. It's a fantastic ride, fun to drive, and the most comfortable place I've ever sat --not just the most comfortable car seat, the best of *any* seat! I love this car! :)
The rear seat area is smaller than preferred but still a bit roomier than most other convertibles. The smooth ride on rough roads is tremendous.
Wonderful hardtop convertible that is quiet with the top up or down. Silky smooth engine and transmission and plenty of pep. With the top up there is room in the trunk for my wife's wheel chair (a compact travel size model) and enough luggage for 3 people...but the back seat is a bear to get in or out of. With the top down access is great but only room for the wheel chair and two duffel bags. Best stereo I've ever heard with two factory sub-woofers. Navigation system is primitive at best; useless! I get 22 mpg in town and 31 on the hwy from the little 5 cylinder turbo-charged engine. She's a head turner, too. The top mechanism was designed for Volvo by Pininfirina in Italty and it's a marvel of engineering.
Sometimes even great cars are discontinued.
2013 Volvo C70Barton P - Saratoga Springs, NY08/08/2016
Superior engineering. elegant folding top. Trunk space! A rear seat people can actually sit in. Comfortable. Great fuel economy.
We've owned this car since 2014. We discovered it when we rented one for a couple of weeks in 2012.
Taking a two week "test Drive" we really came to appreciate Volvo's engineering and attention to detail with this model. You won't find big screens (or any screens) in this car. It's a drivers car. Handling is very predicable and as I noted braking is the best I've ever felt. With the top down wind buffeting is minimal. The 5 cylinder turbocharged engine runs on regular fuel and is designed to enhance fuel economy. Power is more than adequate for any legal driving. Highly recommended.
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.
