My 2008 C30 T5 with geartronic auto is still doing well. it has 14,000 miles on it. I love the performance. I get approx 22 mpg combined (mostly city & little highway) and 29 mpg highway on long trips. I still don't see many on the road in southern california, but that makes it even more cool!
Exterior styling and quick acceleration.
Volvo should try to keep the same decent gas mileage, while slightly increasing the horse power.
