2008 Volvo C30 T5 Version 1.0 2dr Hatchback (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)

Review

Oh what fun it is to ride... knowing you're surrounded by all those safety features! Had the C30 for a month and love it. The seats are unbelievably comfy and the front legroom is spacious (if no one is in the back seat). If you have a dog check to see if he can get climb up the hatch because is quite high off the ground. Power and handling are super. Engine and transmission feel responsive yet flexible; can shift from 2nd straight to 6th gear on freeway, no problem. Clutch is easy to push, won't fatigue leg. Stock stereo is powerful and has aux input for any mp3 player. Cabin storage a little tight but helps with clutter. Altogether a nice car, I'm very happy with my purchase.

Favorite Features

Compact size, easy to park. Stereo system is fantastic (stock). Seats are great, manual even better than electric (too slow for rear access). Doors are HUGE for easy entry/exit (but heavy). Center "floating" console too cool for words and easy to use. Power is clearly there when you need it!

Suggested Improvements

Optional cruise and back seat arm rest? The "customization" program is a joke.
