1999 Volvo C70 Coupe LT 2dr Coupe


Review

Bought this car used with about 30,000 miles. I've owened now for 6+ years, very little problems. I had an issue with the turbo (was leaking and had it repaired for about $150). Other than that, it has been a pretty good car. The only issue with this model (and the dealers I've visited agreed with me on) is the ABD braking system. It is flaky and kicks in during normal braking conditions. One issue I had recently was with the switching panel on the dirver door that controls the windows, the unit blew up while I was driving and I saw smoke come out inside the car. I ordered a brand new unit for about $145 (if I remember correctly) and replaced it myself. Other than that, it's been fun


Best Features

Handling, exterior style, and as one of the reviews mentiond this car is built like a tank, the doors are very heavy and you feel protected inside.


Worst Features

ABS, gas mileage

Review

This was our first new car. It's been an every day commuter since we bought it. We had almost zero problems for the first 100K miles. After that, only the seat motors have gone out and a few minor electrical problems. The reliability seriously rivals an Accord. Also, it's surprisingly quick for only 200 HP. Finally, it's built like a tank. Girly men need two tries to swing the doors shut. That may sound like a downside, but I hate the tinny feeling of a 3 series BMW. And, for a two-door, the back seat is amazingly roomy. A 5'10" man can sit very comfortably for a long ride.


Best Features

Seats; Build Quality.


Worst Features

An inch more headroom in the rear seat.

Review

I married into this car. Wife explained she liked the style, the seats are very comfortable, and she got a good deal on it. I agree with her, however, this car has been to the shop way too much. Things like, light switch, power seats, strut mounts, sunvisors, abs system, oil leak. I can't even list them all. Allow me to sum it up: I think Volvo engineered a good car but assembled it with lousy parts.


Best Features

Radio and A/C still work good. Oh and the exhaust system sounds nice.

Review

I loved this car when I bought a 1999 certified pre-owned. But I have had a lot of trouble with it, and right now its basically falling apart. Of course, my warranty just expired and my extended warranty I bought through the dealership has turned out to be worthless. The car is making all kinds of rattling and squeeking noises, and various things have stopped working, like the power seats, even the headlights!

Review

This is what I had been looking for and this car (my color: desert wind metallic) turns heads all the time.


Best Features

The sound system is beautiful and very well worth it. The exterior design rivals even those cars of '03, nuff said.


Worst Features

Headlights, the cloudy look is awful, but can be improved. Xenons on this luxury coupe should have been an option or standard.
