Volvo convertible: Just what we wanted
Solid & safe, it's a Volvo
A California Car
Smooth, safe ride with more than adequate power for most situations. Looks and handles like what it is, a 2008 era high end sedan. The main reason to buy this car however is, of course the retractable hardtop. It's an elegant piece of Swedish engineering that lets you convert (in 30 seconds flat) from a quiet respectable sedan to a fun machine. And they've even figured out how to still give you some trunk room with the top stowed. Lovely. If you're wondering if the hardtop's mechanical ballet is covered by CarMax extended warranty, the answer seems to be: mostly. The top itself is considered a "body panel" and thus not covered; however the plethora of linkages, gears, motors, pistons, etc. that make it work are indeed covered -- or so I was told after long conversations with the insurance carrier. I'm hoping I never have to find out. One knock: the electronics wiring are Volvo unique, so don't plan on adding aftermarket parts like bluetooth data or nav; it's either not available or ridiculously expensive. Overall however, a great car for the money.
A cool ride!
Love the car! Everyone watches the hardtop retract and ooh's and aah's! They all refer to it as a real transformer! The car is beautiful inside and out! It takes about 30 seconds to raise/lower the top. I was worried about acceleration due to the extra weight of the retractable hard top... but it's not too bad! This is NOT a GT Mustang - if it's strictly performance you want, this is not the car. If you are looking for a refined, luxurious drop top though - this car is perfect. It has a nice, smooth ride. Gas mileage is ok. Plan on the extra costs for premium gas The upgraded stereo with subwoofer is very nice, as well as MP3 connectivity and Satellite Radio. Mine also has the GPS which is very nice as well. Highly recommended!
