Review of the 1999 Volvo C70

  • Info is not yet available.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Roomy inside, sexy outside, Volvo safe under the skin. Turbo provides as much speed as you'll ever need.

  • Cons

    Poorly conceived easy-entry power feature for front seats. Tacked-on look of Dolby center dash speaker.

  • What's New for 1999

    Volvo offers a light-pressure turbocharged engine in the coupe. Both coupes and convertibles get a bit of new standard and optional…

Won't do it again

Vehicle: 1999 Volvo C70 LT Turbo 2dr Convertible

We bought this Volvo C70 Convertible with 74K on it. With in the first two weeks of owning it we had to have front end work done on it. Then the motor in the driver seat died while it was in the lean forward position. That was 1K to fix. After that the top got stuck half way up. Finally, when it rained we got an inch of water in the passinger side floor. I loved this car but did not want to put another dime in it. We got rid of it 6 months after buying it. I'm still attracted to Volvo's though. Only if I had a bigger wallet.

Not as good as they

Vehicle: 1999 Volvo C70 LT Turbo 2dr Convertible

Overall this car hasn't great, the recall for the ECM/Throttle body is the biggest fault. Volvo basically just patched it, the throttle body WILL fail and has to be replaced. Not a cheap repair at the dealer, 1k just for the part, I ordered a new one from another company and replaced mine myself. The ABS control module failed, replaced it myself, the cooling fan went out, the heater/AC blower went out, heater core had to be replaced also. I bought this car when it had 20k on it and I drive almost entirely on the Interstate. The turning radius is awful, a friend has a V70 and it is also. Oh, and how could I forget, the convertible top, doesn't work anymore.




Amazing car
