2009 Volvo C70Top Down - Central Virginia05/27/2010
I love the car. It replaces a Lexus GS that I drove for 215,000 miles. My C70 feels just as solid. I will caution prospective buyers that it may not be practical if this is going to be your ONLY car. I also have an SUV that I drive most of the time. While the trunk of the C70 is spacious with the top up, to put the top down on the C70 you really can't have much in the trunk. You also can't really sit papers and things on the seat next to you as they'll blow out! And while there is a back seat, there is really limited leg room so I'd say 3 people can ride comfortably.
So if the purpose of your C70 is to be a fun, Sunday drive kind of car, it is great. Solid, looks good, drives well, good on gas.
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.
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.
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.
