Reviews for 2008 Volvo C70
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!
Love my hardtop convertible
I traded my ragtop 2 seater convertible for this one. I loved my 2 seater but I'm delighted that I made the switch. This car uis classy, comfortable and rides great. As all of the reviewers state....when I drop the top everybody stares in awe!!!! It's very cool. I was definately not looking for a Volvo when I was shopping for a late model used hardtop convo but I'm glad I stumbled across this one!!!!!!
My Red C70!
April 2015 will clock two years ownership with 71K miles. I'm getting 22 mpg city and 26 hwy. Had a few expensive, what I call unusual repairs first year: vent box, gear shift cover, headliner reattached & added a spare tire!; but LOVE IT in-between the shop visits. The top has worked 98% flawless and I do drop it often! Only a couple times the top on raising there has there been a "klunk" that you feel in the seat also. Always a spectacle during this operation. The 30 seconds has proven a couple times to be fast enough; if you read the weather signs and watch for oncoming cars w/ headlights and wipers on! Purchased their $450 screen wind deflector off e bay for $100 and find it to be pretty effective in keeping my passengers' hair from going all over the place. I would replace it if I found the need to. I find the car ride is quiet when I don't have the absolute KILLER incredible Dyna Audio stereo system on. OMG! There is no equal! With the right playback source, it's as if you are in the jam session sitting in the studio. I'm 59 and have NEVER experienced an equal. The back seat woofers sound MASSIVE! Adjustments make for a most comfortable seat, coupled with the telescopic / tilting steering wheel. Car has ample "get outtatheway" but this is far from a drag race car. Compartments all over the interior that when the valet lock is used, they all secure up. (except the center arm rest) I feel 90% confident leaving the top down with the windows up in very public parking places. I often wish for back up sensors (like most cars) but I do find the mirrors effective for driving. I would buy this car all over again if the need arises.
