2009 Volvo C30 T5 R-Design 2dr Hatchback (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6M)
Review
Caveat this review with the fact I've only owned the car for a week, and I'm still on a buzz from buying it. The manual is incredibly fun to drive, and very smooth. I highly recommend the R-design; it's well worth the money. Cosmic Wht w/ Brwn body kit looks phenom'l, but hard to find at a dealer. It is not a utilitarian vehicle, as the rear bumper is too high and big, and other cars offer more interior space, but it's a great little sports car. More hp/less weight/better mpg than a V6 Mustang. Comfort inside is top notch. Driver views are very good. I did a 1300+ mile trip right after purchase and it holds 80mph easily at 2700rpm. It accelerates the same at 40mph as it does at 70. Fun.
Favorite Features
Engine (acceleration, 6 spd), comfort (embossed leather seats, body position in cabin, climate control), audio (including audio jack and USB port in center console), safety, dynamic chassis, 18" rims, unique and sexy exterior, blue-face dials. Complete driving experience. Loved overseas delivery.
Suggested Improvements
It would be nice to have washer spray available for the rear window. Dirty mist tends to coat the back window (especially when driving on roads treated for snow and ice), and the rear wiper would work better with washer fluid. A cloaking device for speed detection would be nice too :)
