Review of the 2000 Volvo C70

  • Based on a platform that is nearly a decade old, the C70 is a comfortable, sleek coupe with no real sporting ambition.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Roomy inside, sexy outside, Volvo safe under the skin. Turbo provides enough power to satisfy.

  • Cons

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

  • What's New for 2000

    Volvo introduces a high-pressure turbo (HPT) convertible and makes minor equipment changes to all C70s for 2000.

Unique but poor design!

Vehicle: 2000 Volvo C70 LT 2dr Coupe

When I bought this car it was already 5 years old and over 90,000 miles and now it is up to 130,000. I have taken such good care of this car yet I always have to take it to the shop for major problems. It has had electrical problems from day one, the throttle is going out and so is the transmission. There was a recall on the electronic throttle in 06' I was never aware of. From what I have read online this car was just a bad design because everyone else I know with other Volvo models have not had nearly as many problems as I have with the c70. I admit I love its aesthetics because it is so sleek and rare but I spent over eight grand fixing it. Not worth it!




Falls apart

Vehicle: 2000 Volvo C70 LT 2dr Coupe

Like others here, my door panels fall off ($1000 each) switches fail, sunroof constantly comes loose from the frame, the leather seats have peeled and the cqar is a basic nightmare. The throttle body has also failed, steering arm...the list goes on and on despite taking great care of this lemon. Volvo has been no help what so ever despite agreeing that ALL of these are known problems with this disaster.




Interior falls apart

Vehicle: 2000 Volvo C70 LT 2dr Coupe

Solid and fun to drive but the interior of this car is literally falling apart. Both door panels have needed to be replaced (at a mere $1000 per door) electrical switches stick, work when they want to, or fall apart. The leather is peeling on the drivers seat and the sunroof assembly constantly needs to be reglued as the glass seperates from the metal. I've never had a car do this and the darn thing is well taken care of. Amazing for a car with only 25,000 miles - and the dealer just shrugs....

Vehicle: 2000 Volvo C70 LT 2dr Coupe

Fun to drive and safe, but mine is literally falling apart. Both door panels have fallen off and needed to be replaced at the price of 1000 per door, switches fail, the sunroof constantly has the glass peel away from the assembly, switches fail, the leather is peeling, switches fail. The car is tremendously well taken care of but the electronics and interior cabin build quality are horrendous.




Excellent quality and value

Vehicle: 2000 Volvo C70 HT Turbo 2dr Coupe

I have had this car now for 4 summers, I still have not found a car better styled and as much of a looker car. It does get looks and compliments. So far the only real problem I have had is with the driver window operator. The car is incredibly reliable and I would highly recommend




Over 100,000 miles

Vehicle: 2000 Volvo C70 HT Turbo 2dr Coupe

I bought this car used in 2002 with 24000 miles. At the end of 2004 I have 120,000 miles. The only problem I have had with this car is the the electronic throttle has gone bad twice. Other than that I still love this car. I dont really have any complaints other than the electronic throttle.

Volvo did not work hard on improvements or changes since the car came out. I had the C70 2000 coupe low pressure, great car, really no problems after 25000 miles. Decided to have a change and traded...

I have the top of the line stereo that came with my 2000 c70. We also ordered the top of the line with the XC90 which I assume is the same that I have in the C70. MP3's burned onto my CD-Rs DO play ...
