2008 Volvo C30 T5 Version 2.0 2dr Hatchback (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)

Review

Excellent car, handles like a dream, gets off the line fairly quickly. It could use some extra torque though, and you should do everything in your power to stay away from potholes (I cringe at the slam of my 18 inch wheels over concrete expansion joints), but luckily with its superb handling, you can avoid them without difficulty. The sound system is unreal, the car is just one huge menu system. Everything can be changed, adjusted, and tweaked to your exact specifications. I wish the front didn't look exactly the same as the S40 and V50, but it's a small price to pay for having the coolest car around.

Favorite Features

The stereo is spectacular, the myriad controls over everything are like I've never seen in any car.

Suggested Improvements

More standard equipment would be nice, and although this is a tall order, All-Wheel Drive would be great. Also, with more torque would come better fuel economy, which should be a reality in a car of its size. Unfortunately, Volvo has never been king of the mpg hill, but we forgive them
