The comfort and safety of this sedan are not surprising, being a Volvo and all. However I was shocked with how good the stereo system is!
Seriously though this is a great car. Very, very comfortable. Rides super smoothly but has the power to make driving fun. The AWD system is rock solid - paired with snow tires I had no problems in the mountains this winter.
The C70 has been everything I expected. It is comfortable and fun to drive. It handles well and in the limited time I have owned this car I do not regret choosing it over a hard top convertible like the BMW or Lexus. I drove all three makes before making my purchase. Limited trunk space with the top down but this is true for all similar makes. The C70 does have more rear seat room than the others. Thus far no complaints. Although it suggests a higher octane fuel it does well on regular. The computer appears to adjust well and there is no nocking. Looking forward to better weather so I can have the top down more often. Quiet ride with top up and not too much noise with top down.
Get the R-Design
2011 Volvo C30G Clark - mountains, NC03/16/2017
If you enjoy driving, the R-Design is a different car than the regular C30. Great power (225hp), tight steering, firm suspension, quality can be felt and wind noise is almost nonexistent. I would recommend this car for the enthusiast but it's not a convenient family car because rear seat access is not something you want to deal with regularly. Rear tires wear quickly but if your alignment shop is really good, rear settings can be altered slightly to help with that. Factory brake pads are good but dust the rear wheels heavily and I am happier with EBC Red pads on back and will probably go to them on front also. Water in floor (frt or rear) could be sunroof drains in A pillars (short tube or plugged @ firewall) search youtube or Volvo forums.
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.
