In general I am happy with my volvo c30 purchase. The 6 spd manual is fun to drive and it does carry a sleek look that is not too common. However I am missing the rear wheel drive fun of my last vehicle (mercedes c230). Really satisfied about the 5 yr bumper- to-bumper, 5 yr maint plus wear and tear I got with this purchase.
The keyless experience, the low-end torque, bluetooth integration, the USB based song input. The interior is elegant and the floating console is neat. The exterior design of rear side is simply awesome.
No repeat option for songs. No single key option for making song play random. The key fob is too large and the not retractable. I wish there was a third door for the rear seat entry/exit like RX8.
